  • Here is a taster of the feedback we received from delegates who attended this year...

    "Well organised. Fabulous key note speaker and second session with Steve Peters.  A couple of suppliers I met resulted in valuable discussions. Really useful day!"
    Head of Leadership and Management Development, Marks & Spencer

    "A great day. I learnt a great deal from both the keynote speakers, but also from the conversation with colleagues from other organisations, which has led to me increasing my network."
    Director of Leadership and Talent, BUPA Global

    "Really professional, great use of time and natural sales conversations rather than the "hard sell" approach which was refreshing."
    Senior Leadership Development Manager, Royal Mail Group plc

    "Great pace and content. Engaging format and thought provoking! "
    Learning & Development Business Partner, Volkswagen Group (UK) Ltd

    "The best conference of its type I have attended (and I've attended a few!) The logistics were managed excellently, timings stuck to, speakers top quality and supplier meetings really useful."
    Group Talent and Leadership Manager, NFU Mutual Insurance Co Ltd

    "Very enriching, engaging and inspiring. New thinking on a range of relevant subjects, great debates, great selection of interesting suppliers."
    HR Director, IP Group plc

    "Really useful day, in particular the group discussions and workshops were helpful in having an alternative sounding board for new ideas and ways of working.

    A very good group of speakers and some interesting sessions; it's one of the events I always make space for in my calendar. The team are super efficient too!"

    Head of Group Learning and Development, NG Bailey

    "Very well organised and worthwhile."
