The start of Autumn in Beaconsfield means one thing. The Pentacle Tutor Network bi-annual get

Your Country Needs You.... To Innovate

The Chairman of the Design Council Sir Michael Bichard and the entire council spent a couple of days of creative and challenging thought at the newly opened Institute for Government.
