We asked our delegates what they most enjoyed about the 2015 conference, here’s what they said:

Interactive workshop/breakout sessions, a much better format than simply being lectured to
– Meera Ferguson, Adecco

Opportunity to meet fellow GCs and discuss experiences
– Jonathan Radcliffe, Arvato UK&I

Tonnes of practical tips, learning and networking opportunities, excellent pace and highly relevant topics
– Raffi Varoujian, Ciena Corporation

Enjoyed the speakers and sessions immensely

I liked the fact there was a large number of female speakers. So often it’s all men. I think it leads to a much more balanced set of views
– Katie White, C Hoare & Co

The content is relevant to all and engaging – there’s something for everyone
– Natalie Salunke, Netsuite

Really good networking opportunities and exchanges of ideas – you feel you are not alone!
