Tech North had developed a series of free educational workshops for tech startup founders covering topics from investment, leadership and legal to customer development, traction and growth and building a team. They came to us to organise the delivery of three monthly events in different locations across the North. We ran these events for 6 months from July 2016 – January 2017. The events provided a safe place for founders to come and speak freely, so the atmosphere needed to reflect this. With this in mind we used unusual venues as we found this helped to create the relaxed environment the client was aiming to achieve. Each workshop was followed by a networking dinner providing an opportunity for discussions and connection building. To ensure the events remained fresh we maintained variety in the venues and catering options used. Attendance numbers doubled across the 6 months and we received consistently great feedback from delegates.

“You & Us were a delight to work with. From the beginning, they took the time to understand the event needs of quite a logistically complex programme (three events on three consecutive days across six different Northern cities, across six months), never losing patience or a smile. They researched a variety of venues that all met the specification, running the pros and cons and costs past me, and together we reached decisions on which would be the most suitable. They handled every single aspect of the event including venue hire, catering arrangements, drinks, arrivals, registration and payment for all services. It was a real weight off my mind knowing that this was all being dealt with professionally and promptly.”
