‘WHY LOVE MATTERS’

Don’t they say that the three most important requirements in any successful relationship are trust, commitment and communication? (We’ll leave out the intimacy bit for the time-being!). Wouldn’t it be great if you had those things in the relationship you enjoy with your venue of choice?

You would need to be sure that you can trust them to deliver in accordance with your requirements time and time again and it would be even better if they not only committed to that, but actually gave you an assurance of that. At CEME Conference Centre you can trust us to deliver ‘Gold standard’ conference and meeting solutions not just consistently, but with a commitment to constantly strive to exceed your expectations. We do that for two out of three of all our clients and we deliver that with ‘An Assurance of Excellence’. Continue reading

Richard Newman

Richard Newman

Richard Newman will be presenting a session about increasing your impact and influence at the Conference and Hospitality Show, Leeds on Tuesday 26th April. Here he shares one of the items he will discuss – how TED talks have raised the game for presentations:

A few years ago, most people didn’t know what good presentations looked like. If you were lucky you may have had a great leader with a talent for speaking who you could look up to, but mostly you would have seen managers struggle their way through bullet points, boring the audience and saying “This is the way we’ve always done it, so why change?” Continue reading

Spring into the heart of Tate Modern

From May Tate Modern will explore the 35 year career of the one of the most important artist working today: Mona Hatoum. This is the first major survey of Hatoum’s work in the UK. Mona Hatoum creates a challenging vision of the world around us. Through video pieces, performances, and large scale installations, Hatoum inspires conflicting emotions of fear and fascination in the viewer. Mona Hatoum runs from 04 May to 21 August.

The highlight of the summer at Tate Modern will be an exhibition of American painter Georgia O’Keeffe, the first large-scale show in the UK for more than 20 years.
