Early Years and Childcare Service Business Conference - One Peak at a Time

Event code EYC 20/130 
Event description If you find running a childcare business in a constantly shifting political, economic and social environment a challenge you need to attend The Education People's first ever Early Years and Childcare Business Conference.

The conference will provide you with support and guidance in dealing with this ever-changing landscape and show you how tackling ‘one peak at a time’ rather than taking on the whole mountain will benefit not only your business as a whole, but your own personal resilience.

Providing high quality care to children and families is important but this can only be achieved if the business is in a healthy position and has a clear vision for the future.

Hear from inspiring keynote speakers Rebecca Stephens and Ben Kingston-Hughes*.

The conference will offer innovative workshops such as Social Media and Digital Marketing training delivered by Upskill Digital which provide opportunities for reflection and a range of practical tools to implement back at the setting. Details of further business related workshops and how to book will follow in due course.

Delegates will also have an opportunity to visit The Education People stand and get the chance to network with other childcare business professionals.
