"A surprising amount of really useful, thought provoking, inspiring content crammed into one day and organised so that it wasn’t in any way indigestible. The round the table seating for the lectures made networking possible during those sessions and over lunch. So, as well as being informed in the audience, I was able to speak directly to really inspirational people over the table and at lunch and got contact information and ideas for trails to follow from all of them. As a complete newcomer to the field the day was invaluable, a window into the inspiring work that’s being done. I can’t wait to be part of this movement."
