News and Updates

New area of the Troop for NHS Workers

10th April 2020

Due to the circumstances NHS workers are currently working under due to Covid-19 we have now decided to launch an NHS area alongside our Troop platform. With this all NHS workers will have access to videos, podcasts and an online community which will be guided by some of our mentors. 

The Troop – Free Access

31st March 2020

With all the current uncertainty we would like to announce that The Troop is now a free resource to everyone from now until the end of May. We hope that you find the videos and content on there helpful! 

Annual Conference Date Change

31st March 2020

Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Update: Due to the current restrictions in place we will postpone this event from 6-7th May 2020 to 10-11th November 2020. 

We would like to offer everyone the chance to roll over their ticket to the date later in the year this will happen automatically. We would also like to offer instead, the chance to redeem this money sooner as a voucher for the same price to be used on any of our other services detailed below. Those who would prefer a refund should contact us in the coming days to secure this.

For anyone who has already reserved a room at Tankersley Manor please get in touch with them directly. They are very happy to move your date to fit around the new dates later in the year. Tankersley Manor have confirmed that they are happy to refund those who have booked with them directly, however if you have booked through another merchant such as (booking.com etc) we cannot guarantee that you will receive a refund and ask you to contact the provider directly.
