A group of Bewdley Sixth Form students attended a ‘Kick Start’ meeting with the Events Team from DRPG, a Worcestershire based Creative Communications Agency. During the meeting the students discovered how to design a planning strategy for the British Council Connecting Classrooms Global Happiness Conference, that will be held at The Bewdley School, later in the year. The students were given excellent advice from the DRPG staff about the importance of building a strong event time plan, securing additional funding through sponsorship, and balancing a budget.

DRPG commented ‘We are really excited to be involved with this project and welcomed being able to share some guidance, hints and tips. We have full faith in the students that they will do a fantastic job of pulling the event off and we will be here to support the whole way.’
