Hi Joanne
I've requested a connection with you on Linkedin but thought I;d introduce myself. I am an Employer Account Manager at the Skills Funding Agency and am working on an engineering campaign to raise awareness of higher apprenticeships with employers in the east mids. area. We would very much like to work with the IET to possibly put on an event in National Science and Engineering Week March 2014 and wondered if you;d be interested in being a partner? Please give me a call on 07500998096 or e mail louise.barlow@apprenticeships.gov.uk

Kind regards
Louise

Hi Joanne,
I've just moved to the East Midlands and was hoping to join the Young Professionals network. Do you have a contact email address, so that I could ask them more questions on how to become involved?
Thanks,
Eilidh

Hi Joanne,
I'm a teacher at Queen Mary's Grammar School, Walsall and I've set up a 'near space' project called 'Project Horizon' (http://horizon.qmgs.walsall.sch.uk). The pupils research, design, build and launch Stratospheric probes designed to record footage and environmental conditions in the Stratosphere. We've carried out two launches so far and have been on the front page of the national STEM website as well as receiving publicity in local papers, online blogs, radio and on BBC television.
You can see a video summary of our project here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/husxqki3lsdcfj2/Project%20Horizon%20Full.mp4
Photos can be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/a62mc9evu6dt3y6/jjcS4P9JTg
I have planned the next stage of the project and we are aiming to beat the altitude record achieved by the Red Bull Stratos Team (39,045m) and I am trying to find funding (we get some seed capital from the school but the bulk of the budget we raise from corporate sponsorship, private donations and fundraising events). Do you know of any companies local to Walsall who might be interested in supporting us? Do you have any information on other avenues through which we could pursue funding?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards,
Adam

Joanne,

I am the assistant SLO for the South Yorkshire local network. I'd like to make contact with my opposite number Malcolm Eyre in the North West Midlands network, becuase I work for a construction project at Stafford and will be starting STEM work in the area in November. Can you help?

kind regards,

Andrew

Hi Andrew
It was good to talk to you earlier - as promised I've sent all contact details via email - hopefully you've managed to touch base with Malcolm now.
Best wishes

Hi James, Joanne is on holiday at the moment, but she is the best person to talk to about Portugal and I'm sure she'll be in touch when she returns to the office. Just didn't want you to think she was ignoring you...

Hi Chuks
Good to hear from you. The Humber Network put on events in a number of locations, mainly Hull and Scunthorpe (with some visits organised too). The next event in Hull will be on 12 February on the subject of Solar Flares - further information here - http://www.theiet.org/events/local/solar-flares-and-potential-disruption-associated-with-them_20130212_172136.cfm Do let me know if you can go along and I will link you up with the Chairman/secretary beforehand so that they can introduce themselves to you at the event.
