Coffee Mornings

For the first time ever, we are holding regional coffee mornings, so that PTAs can talk to other like-minded PTAs about the things that really matter in their region.  Our Heads of Northern Ireland and Wales will be joining us - please feel free to ask them anything you want!

What is a Coffee Morning?

With no set agenda, the coffee mornings are an opportunity to discuss issues, successes or anything you want with other PTAs.  Hosted by our in-house team of experts, who will be able to bring their 30 years of PTA experiences to any hard-to-tackle issues or technical questions.
