McIntyre HouseOur venue is McIntyre House, in Birmingham – an award winning building designed for learning and development.  It has well designed learning and breakout spaces, plenty of room indoors and outside to enjoy refreshments including a roof top garden.  The building is also the home of two sculptures by Lorenzo Quinn which converge with the emotional development encouraged within our events.

This 7,000sq.m. of teaching and learning space, completed in 2014 for University College Birmingham, is organised over four levels.  The accommodation is in a horseshoe shape enclosing a dramatic central breakout atrium with plenty of space for networking and relaxing.

The events combine plenary presentations, Q&As and discussions – in the lecture theatre; small group workshops – in private workspaces; and informal reflection time – in the beautiful and comfortable communal areas with nourishing refreshments.

McIntyre House FoyerThe state of the art fully integrated audio visual systems, in a learning environment with great acoustics and break out spaces will support our learning and development.  University College Birmingham is a world leader in the culinary arts so the refreshments from their catering department are second to none!

By prioritising the quality of the learning environment, refreshments and technology available we hope to further enhance your experience.

Life to me can be represented through its three pillars: Stone, wood and faith
The Past is set in stone, the Present is being carved out of wood,
and the Future is an empty glass to be filled with our accomplished dreams.
