Durham Johnson School

The Business of Education

Durham Johnston School & Sixth Form College Business Network (January 2015)

Event organised on behalf of Durham Johnston School & Sixth Form. Held on the schools own premises and attended by 50+ local business owners

" It was good to see how much interest the event generated and we as a school have definitely benefitted as there are a number of attendees that have offered to come and give talks to students. I also learnt about hootsuite which is going to save me a lot of admin time, so thank you for that!" B.Garside, Computing, Durham Johnston School.

Feedback from attendees and Sponsors:

"We thought the event was great, well attended and very worthwhile. We were able to talk to some businesses that we otherwise wouldn’t have and made a few contacts which we have been in touch with since." Ashley, Digital Durham

"Another slick event. Good contacts, plenty of business, easy-going atmosphere and coffee by the gallon. Perfect."

Just attended the networking event. Lovely atmosphere, interesting people and your pupils are a credit to you. I really enjoyed networking tonight, it was a relaxed, yet professional, networking event. Look forward to a return visit.
