We are thrilled to announce our speakers and timetable for our ‘Virtual Conference’ event on 13th October. Three hours of quality input from expert speakers! Don’t forget this is a FREE event that replaces our main event for this year. Our next main event will now go LIVE on the 12th October 2021.
You can register for the virtual conference for FREE (but don’t leave it too long as spaces are limited – although not as limited as they would be if we were in the same room!).

As you would expect, there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved and ask questions of our experts on the day. And don’t feel you have to commit to the whole event. You can pop in and out for the sessions that are most relevant to you…although of course we would love it if you could stay with us for the whole afternoon.
