Just spent two days in Bradford attending the 'Making It In Textiles' conference. I was asked to attend as a guest speaker sharing my career journey with final year textile students from universities across the UK. Met some very lovely, enthusiastic students who I'm sure will go on to have successful careers in textiles.
Highlight was listening to Patrick Grant (Norton & Sons, E.Tautz, Hammond & Co., Cookson & Clegg, Great British Sewing Bee, busy man!!) and hearing about his road to success, very funny and inspirational speaker!
