Workshop Title: Working with Complex Issues in Organisations - Carey Glass
Guest Speaker: Jeremy Bloom, Network Planning Director, Highways England
Carey Glass has kindly accepted our invitation to deliver a workshop entitled "Working with Complex Issues in Organisations". The workshop will help clients and practitioners to move out of traditional frameworks, moving forward faster freely. This is a guide that has been tested.

The event is supported by both the UK Association for Solution Focused Practice
(www.ukasfp.co.uk) and the Association for Solution
Focused in Organisations (http://sfio.org/). The best hopes for our meeting
is that we continue to develop a network of SF Practitioners and enthusiasts in
our area, and I would be grateful if you would share this invitation with
anyone you think would be interested, copying me for information.
The idea of this event is that anyone who is interested in SFP can meet with
likeminded souls for mutual education, information and the sharing of ideas
The meeting will be held on Monday 3rd April, 2017,
with optional excursion to the pub afterwards. Lunch will NOT be provided, nor will refreshments. We will take regular breaks and avail of the cafe facilities next to our meeting room.
We will meet in the Community Hub which is on the Fourth Floor of John Lewis's new department store in Victoria Gate, Leeds. This is a short walk from Leeds Railway and Bus stations, and also has a multi-storey carpark adjacent. This meeting room is provided free of charge for community projects, hence my request that we use the cafe for refreshments and food.
This meeting will be run at no charge to members of UKASFP and SFiO and as this is our first meeting at this venue, guest will also be welcomed with no charge. We will discuss future meeting arrangements at this meeting once we have experienced this new venue.
There is only space for 24 delegates so please book now to be sure of your place.
Please share this with anyone you know who may be interested.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
The venue is a short walk or taxi ride from Leeds Railway Station, Leeds Bus Staion and Parking is available onsite in the John Lewis Multi-storey, though this may be an expensive option for all day parking.
