A quick intro from Esther and Bob to all the latest from Losing Control..  read on below for links and more.


What you said..

Thanks to all those who got it touch after Losing Control 2019.  We’ve digested and captured all your feedback in this document here.

Take a peek! There is plenty to build on and plenty to reflect on too.  

Is seems a focus on training and resources (‘teach me’) and working together on specific challenges (‘help me’) is where we should be putting our energies for now. 

So, what’s next?

Advisory group

The first dates for the advisory group are in the diary. In London, on April 1st and in Leeds, on April 9th. 

If you’d still like to join one of the meetups, or send some ideas for us to discuss just let us know.

We can’t wait to catch up face to face again and continue shaping the future of the network. 


If you haven’t seen it already – take a look! We’ve reorganised the website as a hub for useful insights, resources and stories. We’ll keep it up to date with the latest network news and events.
