Comments “Fabulously organised, brilliant workshops. Great registration and staff. Can't wait for the next one.” “Excellent day - thoroughly enjoyable and useful.” “Fantastic event and very informative, feeling a bit more inspired.” “The day was really interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish I could have gone to more than two workshops because listening to colleagues talk about theirs was interesting..” “All in all a well organised day with space for networking opportunities. DVC/VC and Guest speaker all excellent. An absolutely brilliant, inspiring day.” “Just great.”
Registration 186 delegates registered 148 on the day with 8 apologies for none attendance 80% attendance Average rating of event registration = 9
Workshops Review 1 cancelled before the day 1 only with a morning session Lower attendance due to lack of attendees on the day. Recommendations Go for quality rather than quantity of workshops as the lower rated workshops were the least popular.
Catering Review Variety of catering = 8 (Very Good) Quality of catering = 8 (Very Good) Catering’s management could have been better, as the team had to serve at stations. Recommendations “More tables in Quayside perhaps standing style.” Have food that can be eaten more as a finger buffet.
Exhibition Review Average rating of 7 (Good) Twist Pasta Bar changed to unmanned stand. Revolution pulled out before the day. Titanic Spa cancelled on the day. Recommendations Maybe dedicate a specific time slot in the day as people utilised the lunch as a social gathering.
Tours Review Average of 8 (Very good) Only 15/ 58 attended, possibly due to the bad weather and lack of time to eat lunch, although they had a separate queue. Recommendations Have this later in the day or as an alternative to a workshop choice.
After attending the conference, to what extent do you feel better equipped to deal with change? Review 6 = Above average Recommendations Select workshops that better fit the theme.
