I thought it was one of the most professional and informative conferences I've had the opportunity to attend. Educational conferences can be notoriously tedious. This wasn't!

Speakers were very knowledgeable, topics extremely relevant, the programme was kept tight.

Well organised, relevant content, quality speakers, nice venue. I felt this conference was a good use of my time and resource.

Very practical, with case studies of particular benefit.

Vast variety of content and speakers.  Fantastic resources to take away and share with colleagues and use to ensure best practice is in place.

Organisation, venue, variety of presenters – outstanding.

All the sessions were relevant well presented. The conference was very well organised and papers were provided for all sessions. Networking opportunities were appropriate and useful.
