CloudyGroup on the Road …
This October, Cloudy Group were proud to attend the Society of Local Council Clerks’ Annual National Conference at Jury’s Inn, Hinckley. With over 180 delegates representing councils from across England and Wales we were privileged to be among a handful of industry partners invited to exhibit to decision members from the public sector.
Here at Cloudy we currently represent several local councils offering our services including IT support, hosted desktops, creative and digital design, webhosting, and telecoms. With such diverse needs for the different services they offer, meeting so many local councils was a fantastic opportunity.
The event wasn’t all about exhibiting, as council delegates met together to discuss their industry and the challenges they are currently facing – they were able to attend seminars and talks on a variety of subjects including reducing workplace stress, cutting carbon emissions, government thinking on parish councils and public speaking for nervous orators.
The SLCC National Conference is also a chance for local council clerks to let their hair down and relax with their colleagues from across the country. As well as social lunches and an overnight stay at a hotel, the delegates and exhibitors were invited to enjoy a black-tie evening event hosted by the SLCC.
Here’s what some of our delegates had to say about the conference:
“I found the conference to be very inspirational in topics/presentations on offer; my batteries were definitely re-charged. Meeting other clerks has been very beneficial and informative. I have learnt more about the organisation of the SLCC. An
excellent day, I am proud to be a member of the SLCC. The organisation of the day is first rate ad appreciated the ‘new to conference’ session.”
“The exhibitors were excellent.”
“Excellent Conference – My first One! Good Speakers and interesting topics. Would be good to come to more conferences, congratulations to all!”
Here at Cloudy Group we were delighted to meet so many people from across the sector, and were
most grateful for such a warm welcome to our first conference. And the highlight for Beth, our Marketing executive, was riding on the extra-large rocking horse (AKA “The Crazy Hen”) on display from children’s playpark manufacturers, Kompan! Thanks again for letting us have a go!
