BLONDESharing is important, yes we’ve said it a lot but BLONDE makes sense.

There’s nothing wrong in being proud about what you do.

Getting together with colleagues to share ideas and innovation that works has many benefits, not least meeting and networking with colleagues, getting inspired, motivated and enthused.

SuperSheffield know that getting together to share ideas works.
