Talk the Walk - Networking events for people promoting walking
Talk the Walk teamed up with the Urban Design Group to co-host a networking event for professionals working in mental and public health, public space design and walking on Tuesday 10 February at the Arts Council's, London regional office in Clerkenwell.
The event was a huge success - if anything the only criticism was that there were too many people! We tried to restrict it to 40 participants but so many more clamoured to be let in that we ended up with more than 50! Eleven people made presentations on a range of subjects and the Q & A sessions were expertly chaired by Robert Huxford, Urban Design Group Director.
Here are just a few of the comments received since the event:
"I am still a bit stunned by the whole thing. I think you have hit on a really winning formula."
Robert Huxford, Director, Urban Design Group
"Thank you very much for the opportunity to participate in last night’s stimulating event. In addition to picking up a huge amount of interesting and useful information from the presentations, I met several people with whom I should be able to collaborate in the new future. I look forward to the next one."
David Blazey, Social Inclusion, Rehabilitation and Recovery Projects Manager, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust
"Thanks so much for organising Tuesday's event. The world now feels full of potential and I am busy following up new contacts."
Jane Friend, Chief Executive, The Landscape Trust
