Conferences, awards and catching up with clients

 


November 30, 2022

November was a busy month of travel for the Little Man Project team. 

 

Children in Scotland conference 2022

First up, three of us travelled to Edinburgh for the Children in Scotland conference. This was a trip of several firsts. The first time two of the team had been to Edinburgh, our first time attending the Children in Scotland conference (at the BT Murrayfield stadium!) and the first time that we had a stand promoting our services. 

On all three counts, the trip was a great success. By night we walked the famous streets of the city, and by day we caught up with clients we hadn’t had a chance to meet in person (due to COVID), heard how the modules we created with them are being used, and met a range of small charities all doing amazing things in Scotland. It was a brilliant three days. 

Although specifically for Scottish charities, we would highly recommend the conference to English and Welsh charities working with children (in person or via their virtual stream). We knew we were in for something special when the opening session was co-chaired by a 15-year-old young person who spoke with confidence and poise. This is Children in Scotland ‘walking the walk’ when it comes to the participation of young people in everything they do. A later session on vaping was also put together and facilitated by a group of young people as an issue they felt strongly about. 

A big shout out to the conference organisers for a well-put-together event (and for putting our stand next to the cake stall!), all the inspirational speakers and the charities who made us so welcome in the exhibition area.

 

 

Charity Learning Consortium Conference 2022



The following week the whole team took our first trip together to London in many years for the Learning Technologies awards by night and the Charity Learning Consortium Conference and Awards the next day.
What a game of two halves these two events were! One a celebration of corporate success, and the other a celebration of what charities are doing to support their service users, community and, for several winners, helping us get through COVID. We didn’t win an award at the Learning Technologies but were so chuffed to have even been shortlisted.

Hearing the stories from the Charity Learning Consortium award winners was just the boost we needed to remind ourselves why we work in such an amazing sector, and no money in the world would change our focus.

Big thanks to the Charity Learning Consortium for inviting us to attend and for everyone there to letting us take this cheeky 360 image of everyone there 🙂
