What this year's delegates had to say about the conference

I had a brilliant time. The speakers you chose for the plenaries were excellent, and the workshops have me so much food for thought.
A fantastic day, with informative and inspiring keynotes.
Really great! Liked all of the workshops and thought balance was spot on.
