Celebrating success in the children’s activity sector

On Saturday 11 May, Debbie Gilbert attended the Club Hub 2024 event with around 200 children’s activity providers at the Macdonald Burlington Hotel, Birmingham.

This annual event brings together business owners from across the UK for a full day of personal and professional development, tailored to the sector.

She delivered a workshop on Tips to Entering and Winning Business Awards and there were 11 other workshops were offered, covering a range of business topics including business strategy, financial help, inclusion, to hypnosis for success! So lots of interesting topics on offer!

There was an interesting keynote which was delivered by Caprice Fox who is a speaker, educator, EDI trainer and facilitator. Caprice shared her experiences as a black queer mother and was joined by Ruth Butler from Representation Matters, for an engaging Q&A and fireside chat. This session was key to Club Hub’s commitment to raise awareness of anti-racist practice in the children’s activities sector.
