Valued by the community This event is possibly the best you have put on - and the standard is already very high! This has to have been one of the best work-related courses I've attended. Not only do I feel that I have taken on board an enormous amount of information that is directly relevant to my job - and intellectually stimulating to boot - but I feel I have made contact with a supportive network of colleagues. All this, perfectly organised, and a faultless, fabulous environment, too. Outstanding. Thank you!
