Hi Emma,

Thank you accepting our application. Although we are a commercial outfit both partners have a long working involvement in education; my business partner is one of the most successful head teacher in the Primary Sector, for myself I have been Chair of Governors for nearly twenty years. Our original intent was to reduce the internal cost of Governance and reduce educations carbon footprint. Our new venture Online Governor Plus provides online sites for other school stakeholders. What is unique is that the cost is paid out of revenue from the Local Business Directory;in essence schools not only get the three school based sites for free it can generate additional income. For certain groups who provide services to schools could also benefit, for example schools affiliated to Eco Schools - England would get a discount and Eco Schools - England would also benefit financially.

Emma I look forward  to working with Our Society.Think you have my profile,not very photogenic but will try to supply a pic.

Regards

Terence

Hi Emma & welcome to Our Society!

This network is in the early stages of development so we'd very much appreciate any comments or suggestions that you have. I've set up a Feedback Forum for this, so please do share your thoughts there.

You can read a bit more about Our Society and what we hope to achieve by having a read of our About Us page.

As a quick way to get the ball rolling, please feel free to say hello and tell us a bit about yourself in the "Who are you?" thread.

Thanks again for joining, please contact me if you have any problems, and do feel free to set up your own group or discussion - I'm happy to assist with either.

~ Soph
