BVAA AGM Success

Alan Beaulieu’s riveting presentation

Beyond the Barricades at the BVAA AGM
As well as being an opportunity to officially endorse and organise the Association’s past, present and future business, the BVAA AGM meeting cluster also gives members an opportunity to network, hear reports from the various activity strands and working groups, and to meet with partners in a convivial atmosphere. This year’s event was no exception!

After a nervy start with an eye on the weather for snow, all events went off very successfully indeed. The BVAA Board held their meeting on Thursday 6th December 2012 at Slaley Hall near Hexham, Northumberland, and then represented the Association at the NOF Energy Annual Dinner nearby.

On the 7th, members were treated to an excellent presentation by Alan Beaulieu of the world renowned Institute for Trend Research, entitled ‘The Economic Outlook & Beyond.’ Entertaining, witty and insightful, Alan presented for two hours without hesitation, repetition and without any notes, resulting in some of the best feedback we’ve ever received regarding a BVAA speaker/topic. Members will be pleased to learn we hope to have Alan speak again at the Spring Conference.

After the usual Association update reports and AGM, over 100 members and partners were able to relax with a champagne reception, a superb dinner and outstanding cabaret with ‘Beyond the Barricades’ ending their set with a rather topical rendition of the signature songs from Les Misérables. As former members of the show’s London cast, the performance was of course sensational!
