We learnt a lot in this very informative workshop rich in practical tips to optimise your LinkedIn profile.
LinkedIn's mission is to connect the world's professionals to allow them to be more productive and successful, and we want our members to take full advantage of this brilliant platform.
Steve Ponton, LinkedIn expert trainer, kindly presented this workshop for a second time as the first one was over subscribed. This was a practical session whereby we were optimising our LinkedIn profile there and then. Thank you Steve.
This was a free members only event. If you would like to become a member to gain access to our workshops and training please get in touch. We would love to have you on board.
And then the seats were filled..... For our February training event there was plenty of food for thought and round the table discussion on “What is a Work/Life Balance?” and what can we do to achieve this for ourselves.
Namely, to think about our physical state, our energy levels, mental state and spiritual state.
Thank you to Sarra Bejaoui for a great presentation and hosting the workshop at SmartPA HQ!

Laughter, positive energy and lots of inspiration were shared with us by ASB President Lyndsey Philips at our delightful supper on 22 January at The Refinery, for a very Scottish night accompanied with (too much!) exquisite food.
Everyone wore a wee bit of tartan and ensured a wonderful evening of building connections.
We were even provided with a beautiful performance by our very own Diane Roe, EBC Treasurer, who closed our supper by reciting the poem "The Contentment" by WD Cocker.
Check out our Facebook page to see her video.
Thanks for joining us!

As part of EBC's social responsibility we are always looking for good causes to support.
It was an absolute pleasure for our president, Kate Bell to represent EBC and meet with Maria Mackenzie, Fundraiser and Noe Mendelle, Director (pictured) of the Scottish Documentary Institute in January and support them with the 50|50+ Women Direct Campaign!
The cheque was handed over and the picture taken at the Edinburgh College of Art at the University of Edinburgh.
Maria became a member of EBC last year. She is always ready to promote her organisation and invite us to their events to find out more about what they do to support female documentary makers in Scotland.

A fabulous, First Friday!!!
The first Friday of 2020 was well attended.
Lots of energy in The Chinese Room. We were in there rather than our usual spot of The Georgian Tea Rooms as there were still so may Christmas decorations up at The Dome!
But as you can see from the photos lots of connections made and plenty of planning ahead for this new decade!
To all our members, please feel free to bring a guest with you to any of our First Fridays.
See you next month!
Remember you don't have to be a member to attend up to 2 First Fridays; come along and see what we're all about - just don't forget to book as numbers are limited and this is a very popular event.
