Description

Description

A couple of years ago I packed my family home into a U-Haul and left the bright lights of the United Kingdom's capital city for a little village on England's south coast. Why? I had finally found the position I had been working so hard for: CAD manager. And you know what? It didn't work out quite how I expected. Maybe I'm not yet experienced enough to tell you how to succeed as a CAD manager, but I can certainly help you to avoid the mistakes I made. Come and join us for a lively session as we discuss how to put aside the CADing and Codeing, and we talk about what to do next.
