"An exceptionally useful day. It was so refreshing to attend something where the content was so relevant and helpful. We are based a long way from London and so the chance to network was much appreciated. Will be back next year for sure."

"Well organised and great way to round the day off with the drinks and social in the evening...."

"This was the first time I've been to the conference and I thought it was brilliant - thank you so much for taking the time to put it together. For so much of the year we view other companies as competitors and it was great to come together for a day and share ideas and findings on some really important matters that we really should be working together on."
