New president for dental trade association
The BDTA returned to the elegant One Great George Street, London on 8 December 2011 for its annual Midwinter Meeting. As in previous years, the event attracted representatives from across the dental industry, who were interested in the business and social programme on offer.
As unsuspecting delegates gathered for morning refreshments, networking guru Will Kintish kick started the day with an interactive session demonstrating how to break the ice and work the room at a business event.
This was followed by an entertaining and enthusiastic presentation filled with practical tips on how to become a more confident and effective networker.
After a short break, Alden Arnold provided an overview of the activities of the Audit Bureau of Circulations, highlighting that their independent audit of media performance gives advertisers a valued stamp of trust.
BDTA President, Edward Attenborough, then delivered a BDTA Update summarising the achievements during his presidency before handing over to the incoming President for 2012-13, Simon Tucker.
Simon thanked Ed on the Association’s behalf for his dedication and hard work as president, and announced the dates for the next BDTA Annual Conference as 21-23 June 2012, which will take place at the conveniently located Runnymede-on-Thames hotel.
Brochures and booking forms will be circulated to BDTA members in January 2012.
