Key Stage Teacher Supply was one of the sponsors/exhibitors at the Lancashire Association of School Business Managers (LASBM) Conference on the 16th May. This networking event was attended by almost 90 school business managers and bursars from schools throughout Lancashire and was chaired by Sue Edwards, Director of Finance and Administration at Ripley St Thomas CE Academy.
For all those who were fortunate to attend – what a fantastic day! Sue had organised some great speakers ranging from Finance/HR to Cleaning and Catering Facilities, who delivered very informative presentations which I am sure enabled everyone to come away with useful snippets of information.
Speaking on behalf of some of the bursars that I talked to, they concluded that it is always hard to leave the school for the whole day for fear of what you have to go back to the following day. However, just being ‘out of it’ for the day and being able to talk to like-minded people and share practices is so invaluable. One comment was that they felt refreshed and energised to take on the challenges that they faced for the rest of the week! As for me, I found plenty of opportunities to network with new bursars and catch up with familiar faces; all in all, it was a very rewarding and informative day.
