Conference feedback

This was my first conference and it actually exceeded my expectations. Speakers were fantastic. I came away feeling educated and empowered to make change. The chance to come together with such a diverse mix of people and organisations was invaluable. The ability to interact with the speakers at each break was fantastic! Thank you!

Delegate, 2018

First time I have attended - need to get a budget for it each year.
