Guest Speaker- Dean Paton
Our guest speaker for the afternoon will be Dean Paton- Managing Director of Big Heritage. Dean grew up in the Wirral and began his career by running bars and pubs, later deciding to peruse his passion for a career in archaeology. Dean graduated from Chester University and then continued upon this by taking his Masters at Oxford University; during his time completing his Masters, Dean worked in a care home- it was during this time that the idea for Big Heritage was born.
Dean initially started Big Heritage as a way to bring archaeology to children in socially deprived areas, explaining the history of their own towns and cities to them, something that they were able to appreciate. Big Heritage now offer more services such as working on heritage projects, community archaeology projects and taking his knowledge and skills to schools to educate and inform in a fun manor. He found that he was able to help people connect better with heritage through explaining it in different ways; after gaining support from the University of Chester, Dean was able to set up the business within an office at the Riverside Innovation Centre in Chester.
The menu for our 2 course lunch is still to be advised but with the renowned food reputation of Blossoms it promises to be delicious!
We hope to see you at what promises to be a fantastic event! Don't forget your business cards!
