After 3 months away in South America I was looking forward to heading down to London town for the Pick Me Up (PMU) Private View. It was great to meet up with old faces and meet new ones. There's so much happening over the next few days try and get yourself down there. If you can't make it to the big smoke, fear not, I have put together some PMU highlights below and this year there are a series of digital events and social media hi-jacks for the office bound. I'll be tuning into the PMU Facebook and Twitter on 29th April as Birmingham boy Jack Hudson will be taking over to show us what life would be like if we were 2cm tall. Sounds interesting yes?
