Thanks for the all the enthusiasm and support for the idea of a our networking event. Things are moving here with the venue being booked etc so all we need is a few people to get here. You can fly to Jersey from a whole range of regional airports which include: Exeter, Southampton, Bristol, Gatwick, Luton, Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff, East Midlands, Manchester and others. Flights if booked in advance can be pretty cheap at around about £100 or less including taxes etc. Airlines using these airports include: Flybe, BA, Easyjet, BMIBaby and I think Thomsons (not sure if they are still flying in and out of Coventry and Doncaster)
As for accommodation, I'm going to do a little work with a colleague and see if we can get you a corporate in a hotel within a stone's throw of the college where I work. Alternatively, you may wish to find other accommodation which has better views of the wonderful coastline. I'll post more details next week.
Moving onto the agenda - well that's very much for us to decide and again over the next few months I'll try and come up with an outline and then see what everyone thinks. That said I would like us to agree on aims, objectives and what we want to get out of the session before the day itself so that we can get on with the work of networking and creating really useful things that we can take back to each other's colleges.
In the next few weeks I'll post some photos of the college and the island so that you can get a glimpse of where you are coming to.
If there are any comments questions - please let me know asap
