Last week I had a wonderful opportunity to attend the summer garden party hosted by Prime Minister, David Cameron, with my good friend Angela Barker-Dench, Principal of UTC Swindon.
It was fantastic to spend time with Angela on the day of the event, we had the perfect opportunity to talk about the fantastic work she has done at UTC Swindon so far. From hosting the Conservative Party manifesto at the college, to preparing some of Swindon’s brightest for work and university, she is going along way to putting Swindon back on the map.
The venue was a perfect place to celebrate Angela’s achievements, as the garden was beautifully decorated, alongside a selection of gorgeous drinks.
The evening also saw a fantastic speech from Chancellor George Osborne, as well as and lovely words from David Cameron. It was great to see Mr Cameron conducted himself with the same grace and confidence that he saw through the General Election campaign.
Angela also had the fabulous opportunity to speak one-on-one with George Osborne. They spoke about how UTC Swindon has been performing in its debut academic year and their vision of how the university technical college movement is going to impact the educational system in the UK.
At the party it gave me a fantastic chance to catch up with some key contacts. At high-profile events it is an always great to opportunity to meet with and discuss a variety of topics with likeminded people.
