Well done and thank you to all involved
A great day with like minded people in the industry!
My first conference, really enjoyed the day and the speakers, some of the afternoon topics were not relevant to my role but I enjoyed the talks nonetheless. Thanks to all the speakers! The industry exhibitors were all good to speak to, I have research to do on several companies whose services I am interested in.
The talks were not too long and there were good amount of breaks throughout the day. All were very interesting and engaging, especially The Trading Standards and TPO talks. It was interesting to understand what they are doing so we can improve our standards.
