Following ever popular demand, we held another successful Secrets of Success event in the WISH Yorkshire and Humber region. The event was really well attended by people from various stages in their career and received all who attended gave great feedback.
'Social media and me' proved to be a popular session as many of us know we should really 'do' social but we're not really sure how!
