Wow, somehow it is is 24th January already. The holidays seem like a distant memory and if you’re anything like us you’re busy making lots of plans for the rest of the year: bank holidays, micro adventures (TM Al Humphreys), etc.

We have neglected the blog so far in 2011. This is mainly because we were focusing on our big Escape winter party on Wednesday evening. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We’ve received some great feedback which is nice (see below)

We’ve got a full write-up of the party coming later today (as well as an update on what we’ve got planned for 2011 and a look back at 2010).

Before we do that we just wanted to share the following presentations with you. The speakers were really pretty amazing on Wednesday evening – each of them delivering a powerful and proactive message to the rest of us.

Oh and some reviews to check out in the meantime:
