Have a look at the accounts I follow (@hengehall – ignoring the many hundred cycling/wildlife accounts…) there are so many people out there sharing great ideas.

Also look for anyone who may be relevant to whatever topic you are looking at. In the last 12 months, we have interacted with Jamie Oliver, David Walliams, Gregg Wallace (Masterchef), Virgin Galactic, Tesco, M&S to name but a few. You will be amazed at how many people are willing to spare time to look at and comment on your childrens’ work.
