Don’t be afraid to try new things..

As the old saying goes, ‘all good things must come to an end’, and with that we draw to the end of International Ideas Week™ 2015… and what a week it’s been!

We’ve been up and down the country, celebrating in others’ successes as well as trying something new by co-hosting two live and interactive, online events with the Wales Audit Office and the Ministry of Defence; both of whom are long-standing members of ideasUK.

As with all things new, you wonder whether it will be a success or not, or whether you’ll be able to run the event without making any mistakes? I’d be lying if I said it all ran without a single glitch, but even with the odd issue here and there, I can report that the events were a definite success. The positive feedback we’ve had from our first event alone, has been overwhelming.

It has definitely given us a taste for something new, and although it seemed a little overwhelming at first, ideasUK have definitely overcome the initial scares and look forward to bringing you more online events in the future. Both of our events have been recorded so we will be posting up the content over the coming weeks on our website as well as on our social media accounts so keep an eye out for that.

I know they say, ‘don’t be afraid to try new things’, but it’s always a little easier when you’ve got a helping/guiding hand. With that said, ideasUK would like to convey a huge thank you to both the Wales Audit Office and the Ministry of Defence for all of their hard work in co-hosting the events along with ideasUK and ensuring that they were a success. We would also like to thank the All Wales Continuous Improvement Team for the part they played in the events’ success too.

We look forward to bringing you more news and updates next week but until then, have a fantastic weekend and we hope you’ve enjoyed celebrating International Ideas Week™ with us all week this week.
