A great opportunity to get an overview of the bigger picture. It has been useful to pick out and look at information from each of them which I have taken note of and will follow up as learning for ourselves for the future. The event was excellent, provided good contacts and was thought provoking. I went away with loads of good ideas, some of which I will definitely progress. One of the best organised events I have attended. Managing Director, Local Government, Steria I think the fact that the presentations are done in bite-size chunks gives you a flavour of the sort of initiatives that people have been engaged with. It has been fascinating, really, to see the diversity of things that are happening across the country and the services at the current time.

Very much enjoyed the conference. I can see that you and the team have got a well-oiled and effective formula for these which has been honed. I thought that the organisation was exceptional – it ran on rails. They are the senior decision makers. They hold the budget and decision-making power over what services they buy. Head of Community, Net Natives We find that the Local Gov Strategy Forum is a good place to engage en masse with a whole range of local government officers.
You can really engage in a short space of time with a very relevant cross-section of local government leaders. We find that Local Gov Strategy Forum is a very good way to develop new threads and meet new people. Business meetings very good. A lot of senior directors, CEOs and precisely the types of people we are looking to have conversations with to make those enterprise-wise investments. Other conferences I’ve been to – not just in the UK but across the US and Europe – are much more formulaic, whereas here it is much more about proactively integrating the delegates with the vendors.
Solutions Architect, Rocket Software We find these events are very well organised, providing an excellent forum for us to meet and communicate with key individuals from across the sector. The format and structure of the events provide plenty of opportunities for interaction and discussion. Marketing communications manager, Management Consultants, Atkins Generally well run, good accommodation, some really good speakers.

Controversy[ edit ] Anthropologist Helen Fisher in What happens in the dating world can reflect larger currents within popular culture. For example, when the book The Rules appeared, it touched off media controversy about how men and women should relate to each other, with different positions taken by columnist Maureen Dowd of The New York Times  and British writer Kira Cochrane of The Guardian. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they’ll be and who they’ll be with, avoid revealing one’s surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.
Don’t leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it’s going. If you explain beautifully, a woman does not look to see whether you are handsome or not — but listens more, so you can win her heart. That is why I advise our boys to read stories and watch movies more and to learn more beautiful phrases to tell girls. The Internet is shaping the way new generations date.
Facebook , Skype , Whatsapp , and other applications have made remote connections possible. Online dating tools are an alternate way to meet potential dates. The average duration of courtship before proceeding to engagement or marriage varies considerably throughout the world. Shanghai marriage market Patterns of dating are changing in China, with increased modernization bumping into traditional ways.

The Social Group is the favourite social organisation for singles. The Social Group was set up in the first place because of our own experience of being single and finding it really difficult to meet people and make new friends. Before there was The Social Group, we tried everything, and to be honest, were pretty appalled at the choice… We found the usual sad singles clubs had bizarre rules where women had to agree to dance with any man of any age who asked them, and then had to allow themselves be hit on in a really creepy way.
We found other local clubs who almost forced people to hold events in their own homes, paying to cater for the horde of complete strangers who descended upon them. We found the stereotype dodgy dating agencies cost an arm and a leg, and the upshot was you found yourself sitting next to just one person of the opposite sex who was totally unsuitable, both of you feeling extremely awkward and pressured. We found the classified ads had no safeguards at all — and we were told some real horror stories of meeting the types of people you definitely would not wish to mix with.

Eagle-eyed train enthusiasts will have spotted the train as it arrived at Carmarthen railway station shortly before 10pm on Thursday night.
It will be used by Great Western Railway on its routes between South Wales and London, and, with speeds of up to mph, is expected to shave 20 minutes off journey time for people travelling from Swansea to Paddington. Following the announcement that electrification will not be rolled out further west than Cardiff, the hybrid trains will rely on their diesel engines as they travel between Carmarthen and the capital. However, electrification is not expected to reach Cardiff for around 18 months or so, meaning more journey time will be spent in diesel mode.
Read More Rail passengers in Wales face three months of disruption due to electrification While not as beneficial for the environment as they would be if the whole line from Paddington to Swansea was fully electrified, the new trains will still be more environmentally friendly than the current HST models. Initially coming into service this October, there will eventually be 59 new trains on the Great Western Mainline from South Wales to London. Like us on Facebook.
