Top interview tip #1: Research the company

2019 Metal Basher’s Ball – MMMA Dinner Dance

The Glen Callum Associates Team were once again dressed to impress as we joined The Metalforming Machinery Makers’ Association (MMMA) for their annual Metal Bashers’ Ball. The event was held at the Copthorne Hotel in the heart of the Black Country, just 10 minutes from the Glen Callum Associates HQ!

Following dinner, we were treated to a local history lesson from Guest Speaker Carl Chin on the truth of the real Peaky Blinders and the Shelby Clan. For instance, did you know the term “Peaky Blinders” was a generic term referring to any violent gang from the West Midlands area and not just the formidable Shelby family? (Well I do now!).

Finally, finishing the evening off there was some fantastic music and dancing from the Soultown Collective followed by plenty of networking and catching up with clients we have worked with closely over the last year such as Bruderer, Worcester Presses, Schuler to name a few!

Check out some photos of the Glen Callum Associates team and other guests at the MMMA Metal Bashers’ Ball 2019.
