Gloucester was buzzing last night with the official launch of Ten2Two Gloucestershire and Bristol.

Balloons, cupcakes and prosecco was the order of the night along some inspiring talks and a room full of local professionals.

After some informal networking, John O’Sullivan, founder and Chair of Ten2Two opened the event and told the story of how Ten2Two was founded and why, after ten years, they are still so passionate about connecting local businesses with talented local professionals.

Tracey Adams explained how becoming a member of Ten2Two means joining a local community of like-minded professionals all with the common purpose of finding a role that offers that elusive work/life balance.

Finally, Judi Bonham, Managing Partner of WSP Solicitors a successful local law practice employing over 80 people, explained the great benefits that having a flexible workforce can bring to an organisation.

All in all an informative, inspiring evening was had by all with everyone looking forward to seeing great things.

One attendees said: “Very nice to meet you this evening. I’m going to join up tomorrow… Thank you for a refreshing chat – ending January on a very good note”
