Last, but most definetely not least I also want to say an ENORMOUS Thank You to everyone that managed to attend the Big Fat Scottish TweetUp.
Without the people its nothing. The Event is prmarily networking though it has its charity based side and the connections made are invaluable.
From those I was able to talk to, these connections were made and attendees have made new friends as well as catching up with the old.
Your kind words, encouragement and support meant such a lot too and I really appreciate it and together we raised £420.
