Last week I went to Nottingham for our annual conference. This was with the power of 3 from each UO Europe store, district managers, buyers, stylists, managing directors etc. (otherwise known as 'Urban Check In.') It was basically 3 days of talks, networking, multimedia presentations and a walkthrough of our new Nottingham store. Plus a black and white masquerade ball, for which we had to make our own masks (you can see my effort below.) I found the whole thing very inspirational and I came away feeling very lucky to work for the company I do, plus also came away with an incredible hangover for which I blame the free bar.
