Other comments about the Forum
“inspiring and provocative” “clear and practical” “hit exactly the right spot”
“I have to admit that prior to the event I was sceptical about how useful the sessions would be to my work. Having attended the day however I was thoroughly impressed not only but the content of the sessions but also by the organisation and the especially the timing of the sessions. All of the staff involved contributed to an extremely enjoyable day which has taught me a great deal (not least to be more open-minded prior to events such as these in future!) and I left the event with reams of notes which will assist me with many tasks I am currently undertaking.”
