If you run a small or medium-sized practice or are a sole practitioner I know it can be a difficult decision to give up one, let alone two, days to what is in effect just another CPD event.
Guerrilla Tactics should be seen differently: it is held at 66 Portland Place (don’t we all love being there?), it is designed, constructed and championed by a team of small practitioners and RIBA staff specifically for small practitioners, and it deals with really key and topical matters that we all need to know about. The cost of attendance is as low as we can afford to budget for, and much less than equivalent CPD training. All Guerrilla Tactics conferences are principally offering tools to be more successful in business and in practice.
The 2012 conference day, which we have grandly titled ‘New Frontiers’, looks further into areas of work that we will all need to embrace, from dipping into local community forums and acting as redevelopment champions under the new Localism Bill to guiding small practices to start working successfully abroad. The programme should be stimulating and useful.
The CPD day – hugely popular – organises the very best seminars over a wide range of core topics and can help you to populate your file with excellent and on-message talks.
Every year the feedback gets better and the number of returning delegates speaks volumes for the quality and relevance of the event. Please come, I look forward to seeing you there.
