  • It's common when events are free for delegates to book a place but not turn up on the day. This means others lose out and it can make it not worthwhile to run the event, especially as they are free and run at a loss. Please don’t book the event unless you intend to attend. If you are unable to attend please email julie@julieboyd.co.uk as soon as possible so we can offer the place to someone else.

What will happen at the D&T:Connnect events?

For some events the content will be decided on beforehand by Julie and Paul Boyd. For others delegates who sign up for the event will be asked to vote for their preferred focus. Most events will have an informal format based on the following:

  • Swap Shop - delegates will be invited to bring along work to showcase although this is not compulsory More information will be given on this when delegates book but it will be completely up to you what you bring. It may be something as small as a photo of your classroom or something as big as a project outcome. Although it isn’t compulsory for delegates to share anything at the event the more that share the better the event is likely to be. 
  • D&T A&E - an opportunity to ask questions and get answers to queries and things worrying you. Delegates will be asked to submit questions beforehand where possible and, as time is short, these will be prioritised on the evening. We will try to answer as many questions as we can during the time available. 
  • Ideas Hub - this is likely to make up most of the event and will generally be delivered content by Julie and Paul Boyd. They will share resources and ideas based on the theme of the evening. Sometimes the theme will be decided by Julie and Paul beforehand and at other times delegates will be asked to indicate what they would like the theme to be. The theme for up and coming events is listed with the booking details below. Only delegates who attend the event will receive the resources used. 
  • Party Bag - everyone attending the meeting will take away a small party bag related to the theme of the event.
