Your feedback

 

Interesting lecture, facilitator was very good and case studies were well thought out.

Delegate, Northern Ireland Regional Event

I have never done a peer review before and having been on a career break and out of practice for 8 years, I was quite apprehensive about the discussion. However, I felt very well accepted and really enjoyed the discussions, I feel a lot more confident now.

Delegate, East Midlands Regional Event

Thank you, very informative, enjoyed the lecture and peer discussion, always learn something new.

Delegate, South East Regional Event

Wasn't looking forward to this, but I found it very informative, useful and enjoyable - thank you!
