Blogging for Business – what happened?

On Thursday the 9th of February, in a bitterly cold Manchester, the UKAWP held their first Northern Blogging for Business workshop with Julia Braime from Brides Up North as our expert tutor. The evening was organised by our lovely Northern Rep, Andrea Swift, whose help and dedication we always appreciate.

Huge thanks to everyone who battled through the snow and ice to join us, Julia for making the workshop so accessible to us all (she had a whole range of levels to deal with), to the Palace Hotel -who really looked after us and to Caroline White who was our official photographer for the evening.

We are already talking about doing another one later in the year when hopefully the weather will be a little kinder to us!
