16:30 It's been a really great day here @Learning Tree UK  talking about influence and techniques and strategies that can used to improve your influence. We'll be back tomorrow at 9am for day 3

I'm off to watch the mighty Wales play Portugal in tonights semi-final. See you tomorrow.

11:13 BREAKING NEWS ON THE Euros (Sweep Stake). Learning Tree's Director of Operations David Orledge has Portugal in the sweep. Clare Frost IR Co-ordinator  has Germany.

10:25 Morning Coffee break. Lots of talk about Iceland and how well they did at the Euros. More talk of Wales. Learning Tree's Jane White has Wales in the Learning Tree office sweep stake. I doubt very much she expected to still have her pound in the game at this stage...
