What’s On

We’re delighted to share that our brand new programme designed to help us power through the forthcoming weeks together, will be delivered in a variety of formats and led by a range of experts!

You can look forward to regular webinars, dedicated clinics in our Power Hive WhatsApp group and intimate virtual member meetings (accessible to non-members at an additional cost), hosted by industry leaders.

We’ll also be hearing from a number of our Power Hive Partners during dedicated weekly ‘Supplier Spotlights’ as they share their wealth of knowledge and expertise in our WhatsApp group!

Whilst what lies ahead remains unknown, we’re confident that through knowledge-sharing, collaboration and a community spirit, we can power through the next few weeks and months in true Hive style together!
