Wild Card Pack

This club was created for Ecademy BlackStar members who don't take themselves too seriously and like to let off steam in trusted company. Application process is detailed below. Since then it has developed into an immensely supportive group of people who are living the "winning by sharing" ethos - through a genuine desire to enable all of us to succeed. With plenty of robust interaction at many levels, within this forum, at monthly offline brainstorming sessions and the ever-present Skype chat - always evolving to make what is growing here accessible as it can be to each of us. And indeed, in effect building on the original ethos of BlackStar and taking that forward in a way that works well for the WCP members.
