Twi-lights of #oeMATs

Our recent MATs summit was alive with great ideas and expert advice. Looking back, here are some of the things that got our delegates tweeting. 

The Twittersphere at the two-day MATs Summit was electric with the constant buzzing of my phone from every notification; from the brilliant 'Leaders Debate' (with Stephen Morales, Emma Knights, Stephen Tierney and Dame Dana Ross-Wawrzynski) to Laura McInerney's ‘easiest interviewing gig in the world’ with Lord David Blunkett.

Laura McInerney kicked off the morning with an interview with Tim Coulson on building MAT capacity and managing growth.

Twitter takeover

Thank you to all who tweeted from the event. It's great to see such great interaction and just some of the insights you took away from the Summit.

I hope you managed to meet up with your Twitter friends as well as create new ones!

Here were a few of our favourite tweets:

Photo competition winner!

Big congratulations to our photo winner @NickyGNickster with her brilliant photo of Laura McInerney and Lord David Blunkett!
