Christmas comes early for your favorite superheroes…we are thrilled to announce that The Simplifiers have been accepted into the Next Business Generation incubator in Nottingham, England!
As the next step in the fast growth of The Simplifiers in the UK, this intensive incubator program begins on January 12, 2015, immediately after CEO Mary Baird-Wilcock, CSEP returns from The Special Event – TSE conference in Anaheim, where she is slated to speak on 1000+ large-scale event planning and facilitating a round-table discussion on working with apprentices and interns in the events industry.
Next Business Generation selected Mary of The Simplifiers as one of their 6 finalists for the Winter 2015 incubator program for their “business-accelerator programme designed to create more, better-quality and successful start-ups in Nottingham and targets aspiring companies in three key sectors of industry in Nottingham; digital, clean-tech and life sciences. NBG is funded by Nottingham City Council, the Department of Business, Industry and Skills.”
“I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the NBG incubator,” replies Baird-Wilcock, “…as we are launching a new educational product offering in 2015 for event planners and this is the perfect platform to make it happen.”
This opportunity couldn’t come at a better time for Mary and The Simplifiers.
“Over the last seven years, we’ve mentored over 70+ emerging professionals in the events industry through our in-house training program called The Apprentice Program,” says Baird-Wilcock, “with the help of NBG, we will finally launch The Apprentice Program publicly for other event planners all across the US and beyond as their go-to online training portal for their apprentices and planning teams.”
Hip hip HOORAY!
