Last week we received some very sad news from our Director of Learning, Dr Carol Martin. Circumstances in Carol’s personal life have dictated that she ceases to work for us. One of the great strengths of this organisation is the amazing personal bonds and friendships that have developed over decades. This strength stands us in good stead and we are therefore happy to support Carol’s decision. Carol has worked with us for over two years, is known to a great many of you and has been instrumental in a range of changes the organisation has made. Many of you will understand but be extremely sorry not to have the chance to say thank you and au revoir.

We totally understand Carol’s decision and she has been assured that she has many friends at bbodance and that hopefully, at some point in the future, she will be in a position to reconnect with us. As far as bbodance is concerned the search for someone, to build on the platform and continue the momentum that Carol has established, has begun.
