Priority Booking for Creative Conversations Aug - Dec 2009

Apologies for the lack of a blog update after the July Creative Conversation while we were managing the handover between Directors and interim Managers! Please bear with us and we'll be back with an update after the August session. In the meantime, why don't you get signed up for a priority place for the next batch of Creative Conversations...

Members of the pool are invited to book a priority place at the Aug - Dec 2009 Creative Conversations, in partnership with greenroom.

Pay in advance for the next five Creative Conversations to receive priority booking and save £5 on the total price.

After opening up the Creative Conversations programme to the PANDA membership at the beginning of 2009, we now have a healthy pool of 50 individuals who can apply to attend each event. These new contributors have helped keep the programme fresh, bringing new ideas and perspectives into the group.

As we move into the second half of this year's programme, we hope to keep bringing you the quality speakers and thought provoking topics that you have come to expect from Creative Conversations. Check out details of our August event with Emma Stenning at

Wwe would like to offer all members of the pool the opportunity to book in advance for the remaining five sessions of the year, August to December 2009.

Book by Friday 31st July and pay just £35 for the five forthcoming Creative Conversations, a saving of £5 off the total price.

You will also receive priority booking in the event that there is a greater demand for places than capacity allows.

Be quick though, as this offer is only available to the first 15 people to apply!

Once the 15 priority places are filled, the remaining members will stay in the pool of participants and can apply for any available spaces at each Creative Conversation on a first-come-first-served basis.

Please note: Priority members from the last period, Feb - Jul 2009, do not automatically gain a priority place for this forthcoming period, Aug - Dec 2009. Make sure you keep your priorty status by booking now!

To book, contact Rachel on 0161 274 0626 or email to reserve your place, then pay your £35 via PayPal ('Send Money' to or by cash, cheque or balance transfer. Your priority place will not be confirmed until we have received cleared payment.

We look forward to seeing you in August!

The priority booking entitles the named member to one priority place at each Creative Conversation, Aug - Dec 2009.

No refund will be provided if a priority place is not taken up.

Priority places can be assigned to another person from the named member's organisation with prior notice, provided that they are also a full PANDA member and have been accepted into the pool of participants.

If more than one place is required at each Creative Conversation, the additional people will not receive priority booking but are welcome to apply through the pool in the usual way.
