What people say about us

I have attended a number of online conferences since Covid but I have to say I am thoroughly impressed by the organisation and attention to detail of this one. The calibre of speakers and the time put into making every session effective and thought-provoking has been second to none - needless to say I look forward to attending and participating in the conference again next year!

This was a great conference. It was well coordinated and facilitated. The presenters were knowledgeable and engaging. The opportunity to network with likeminded people was interesting. Lots of great "Take Home" messages. Thanks

The sessions were very interesting, covering a good range of topics with a number of engaging and insightful speakers. The event provided a really excellent overview of how agencies across the CJS had adjusted to working under the restrictions brought in by the COVID-19 pandemic and the innovative ways to overcome the challenges.
