Meeting with Sarah and David Reilly

Friday 21st was the last day in Glasgow for Sarah, one of our german participants, After 3 weeks enjoying her work placement, she had to say good bye to her host employer, David Reilly, founder of Create Ts & Cs.

We visited Sarah and David to have some feedback about their experience and we are glad to say that they both enjoyed working together,

« It went very well, if she was staying here I would hire her ! », said David Reilly. As for Sarah, she couldn’t stop smiling while being showered with all those compliments :  « She adjusted very well. She would not only do the research but write the blogs. That was very useful. She was very quick to capture what I wanted. She also used her own initiative », continued David.

Sarah was indeed in charge of writing some blog articles that will be posted on the company’s website

We enjoy very much when a work experience was so useful to both parties. Whilst improving her english and acquiring new skills, Sarah has been able to learn a new work method and contributed to the success of such an innovative company as Ts & Cs. As for David Reilly, he could, in the meantime, focus on other areas of the company that needed his full attention.

Well done, guys !

Business banter at Paperinos restaurant

On the 21st of february, apart from taking care of our current interns in Glasgow and searching for host companies and families for our next big group of french apprentices, we had the pleasure to take part in the weekly business banter held at Paperinos, a bar restaurant in Glasgow.
This weekly meeting has been going on for more than 3 years now and the friendly, relaxed atmosphere was highly enjoyable.
The concept is quite simple : this networking event is attended by professionals who have for sole purpose to make new contacts and have interesting conversations with their peers.
« No need to sell yourself to the group » says Business Banter on their website.
In fact, we did not need to sell ourselves to anybody but we left the event with several business cards and a wide smile on our faces.
With the organiser, Martin Jack, we had a good laugh about the incessant rain on saturdays in Glasgow since October 1st.
We also admired the artistic and creative talents of Istvan Szép and talked with Alison Mc Kay about the effortless chic of parisian ladies,
Unlike other formatted professional networking groups, Business Banter is not limiting your speach time, it is as natural as meeting friends in the pub.
We really appreciated the chat and will surely be back for more !
