Fifteen years ago, I entered the world of software training. Freshly armed with a laptop, copious handouts, and a projector the size of a microwave; I crammed my kit into a suitcase and proceeded to travel the length and breadth of the country. I kept Flybe in business and racked up enough BP points to treat myself to free Ginster’s and Ribena once a month. Why? Because it delivered value, customer engagement, and customer understanding.
Over the last few weeks, like so many around the country, I have joined in celebrating our key workers who have worked tirelessly trying to get us through this challenging and devastating COVID-19 pandemic.
Following on from a very successful show in 2019, the Southwest Care Exhibition 2020 is set to be bigger and better with a strong focus on INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY and SIGNPOSTING in the sector.
- Meet the innovators who are constantly working to meet the demands of a growing older population and to overcome the pressures of budget cuts and increasing numbers of people requiring care in the region.
- See technology in action and learn how it could transform your organisation by improving and enhancing the services you already provide.
- Discover organisations with whom your business can collaborate and grow and make connections with the people who will enhance your career in the care sector.
If you’re a care organisation owner, manager or leader, this show is the best place to reach an audience of key decision makers in the care industry in the region – and beyond!
