New Kids On The Block Party
We’ve allowed ourselves a modest bask in the afterglow of our very successful first ever Blocknorth Block Party, which we ran in February at Tuspark Barclay's Eagle Labs (a heap big thanks to both Andrew Dixon and the rest of the team).
Backers and bakers
We were delighted get support from some key and leading thinking companies including Sintons, QEM Solutions, Gospel Technology, Agent Not Needed, Get Film and of course some great food from a wonderful Newcastle based street food SnackWallah.
What’s in a number?
The bald facts include over 80 attendees, 30 different companies, points on the compass including London, Scotland and Holland, 6 cracking presentations and lots and lots of feedback.
And…how did we do?
We took the opportunity to invite attendees to indicate just what level of learning our Block Party had managed to deliver
Using a highly cunning ‘Before Block Party and After Block Party’ model we captured the factor of knowledge uplift.
Yes, you read that right, the average overall increase in knowledge was rated at 240% - so a real big well done to all our invited resenters.
