Press Release: 12:30hrs Tuesday 11th January 2011
GET MOTIVATED Great Britain 2011, which had been set to take place on Saturday 15th January 2011 at the LG Arena, NEC, Complex, Birmingham, has been postponed to Saturday 2nd April 2011 because of extreme weather conditions in the USA and the high risk of the American speakers not being able to attend the event.
"The reason for the rescheduling is totally down to the extreme weather the USA is currently experiencing," Phil Watts, Managing Director of The Success Bureau (promoter) confirmed. "We weighed up all the information we could get about the snow etc, and felt it would not be fair to our delegates to continue with the event on the 15th January 2011 with a very high risk that some, if not all of the American Speakers were not appearing.”
"We think it’s the fairest decision all round for delegates across the UK and even from other countries who will have to travel in.”
"I can only add how sorry I am that the weather has forced us to reschedule the event – We were all really looking forward to it but it can't be helped. As a gesture of goodwill, all existing ticket holders will receive a FREE copy of the GET MOTIVATED Great Britain 2011 Event Programme & Workbook on the day (RRP £10.00) We look forward to seeing you all on the 2nd April 2011."
End:As you can all imagine we were all very disappointed that the event had to be moved. However, on a positive note: We have had tremendous support from all our customers and all the speakers bar one. (Clearly, some speakers are in it for the money - not the positive impact they can have on other peoples lives! SHAME... Never mind... as a positive organisation we replaced them with PENNY POWER, a tremendous speaker, entrepreneur and founder of "The Ecademy Network".
