Bolton Mini Convention Draws the Crowds

The Societies Mini Convention in Bolton on 19 April 2012 was a great hit with local photographers in the North West.


With pre-registration bookings topping over 300 the modern venue Reebok Stadium saw photographers stream in to meet the assembled trade and attend the free lectures.

Keynote speakers Catherine Connor and Damian McGillicuddy provided informative lectures, which kept the crowd engrossed

Trade exhibitors reported a great day and enjoyed the opportunity to meet new and prospective customers. Chris Whitle from the Flash Centre commented an a terrific day and was encouraged by the enthusiasm of the attendees, GF Smith's Gail Mellors said Fantastic opportunity to show our latest albums and products , Click Corporations CEO Charlie Keufman enthused by seeing existing members and pleased to demonstrate The Photographic Organiser new clients


Catherine Connor lecture '60 minutes to change your businesses performance' got to grips with the ever-challenging topic of moving a photographic business forward. As photographers we often overlook the essentials and that are running our business successfully, Catherine a recognised expert in the field hit the audience with an insightful lecture, which was guaranteed to inspire.

Damian McGillicuddy aka 'The Big Dog' sunk his teeth into his inspirational lighting and posing lectures ably assisted by his model, Jen Brooks. Damian said, I had a FABULOUS day yesterday sharing a laugh and a joke, along with a little education at two ''taster'' presentations I did at the Societies ''Mini Convention'' in Bolton. Its great to see the enthusiasm and interest in people wishing to learn and better their craft. It really is a privilege for Team McGillicuddy to present and hopefully inspire people on to bigger and better things in your own photographic journey. So thank YOU very much for giving me the platform and your time.

The Societies Mini Convention team now look forward to the next event 11 May 2012 - Falkirk Scotland when guest speaker John Denton will be back to
