Blog > The Variety ContinuesOctober 13, 2014
It has been a fantastic few weeks for us. New clients have been kind enough to choose us as a partner. Yet again, diversity of project type has been the order of the day!
A new project is just kicking off with Colegau Cymru,. We are reviewing the work of the Welsh Further Education sector on the international scene. That's a real passion for Alun so he is really going to enjoy that project. Miles however, continues to gather interest in his project management development programmes. North Somerset Council have been keen to develop their people in this area and just this week we were delighted to see DAS, the major insurance group, doing similarly.
Also this week, we became recognised as a business advice and mentoring support partner to Birmingham City Council. They are a delivery partner for the Start Up Loans Programme. Given that all the team have experience of setting up their own businesses and have also run businesses for a number of years, this should be a programme where we can share what we've learned and hopefully help others start their own businesses in Birmingham. It is great that Pam and Mike are joining with us for that work.
It is great to win new business. Meanwhile, work continues on some of our on-going projects. The data gathering stage of the review of Disability Wales continues for another two weeks. There has been a fantastic response in terms of number of people and organisations that have something to say about Disability Wales. It has really made us think about disability and the issues disabled people face daily. The social model of disability has won some converts here!
