‘Being Our Best’ – Strategy Weekend 2016

50 leaders representing 9000+ members of Girlguiding Nottinghamshire committed to ‘Being Our Best’ last weekend during a series of lively presentations and informal networking sessions which established the organisation’s strategy for the next five years.

Held at the Jubilee Conference Centre on the University of Nottingham campus, the event was attended by Guiders from across the county and was the first opportunity for new County Commissioner Jackie Brocklehurst to make clear her vision for her term in office. Orlando Hampton was the facilitator for the day and guest speaker was Janie Hampton, author of ‘How the Girl Guides Won the War’, who presented a fascinating take on the history of guiding and its continuing role in empowering young women everywhere.
