Malcolm McClean was the host for The Southway Staff Festival at The Point, Lancashire Cricket Club for The Southway Housing Trust. He helped the Project Team design the event and hosted the whole day, including a live interview with two time Olympic Gold Medal winner for cycling, Ed Clancy.

Bearhunt has launched the Sympo, it's own unique concept which is the antidote to the deadly dreariness of traditional conferences.
If conferences are so boring then why do people keep attending? They want to fill a need for information and connection, yet so often come away feeling empty and drained.
It doesn’t have to be like that. The clues to a new way of equipping people with new knowledge and energising them into action can be found by looking backwards….to medieval England and to ancient Greece.
