We have been asked by the team at Barclays to find some MNers to attend an Ideas Workshop. If you are interested in helping to make day-to-day banking easier for you and other parents then this is the event for you. This is a chance for you to have your voice heard by Barclays.

We're looking for parents, and parents-to-be, (mums and dads) for the workshop - you don't necessarily have to be a Barclays customer to join in, we are just looking for people with great ideas to improve everyday banking for parents.

Below are the details of the event:
Date: Monday 22 July 2013 (and yes, we appreciate for many that this is in the school holidays and therefore Barclays will be happy to help with any childcare costs).

Time: 10.30am - 2.30pm

Location: Central London (zone 1/ 2)

Every MNer who attends will be paid £75 as a token of thanks and to cover any travel costs

Please also note:

Parts of the event will be filmed - the edited films will then feature on the Barclays pages on MN (hosted on YouTube), as well as possibly elsewhere. They may well also be used by Barclays and MN social media. Please only apply if you're happy to be filmed.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the event and the fact that it will be filmed, we are really sorry but children unfortunately will be unable to attend. Babes in arms are welcome.

Lunch and drinks etc are provided.

During the workshop there will be small group sessions and overall discussions with other parents (and parents to-be) to share your ideas and views for how you think Barclays can make everyday banking better. Senior representatives of Barclays will be present as will CarrieMumsnet.

If you're able and willing to attend please add your details here

All responses (except MN name) will be passed onto an independent research agency called Firefish who will be managing the recruitment on behalf of Barclays. Your details will not be passed onto any other 3rd parties and you will only be contacted about this event.
You may then be called by this team to run through some further details. Responses will only be used for the purposes of this event and you will not receive any marketing as a result.

Any questions please post below and we will answer them asap or get a response from Barclays

Hi, I haven't heard anything yet. Does that mean that I haven't got a place???

ChocolateMama: I will give them a nudge for you.
