Fantastic. Much better than other conferences I have attended and really relevant CPD. Thank you.

As some who attended the conference for the first time I thought it was excellent and ideas picked up will support our work back at base.

This was my first time at conference. I found all the subject areas to be relevant and useful in my role. It was a great opportunity to network and build some new relationships.

This was my first conference and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I found the keynote speakers and workshops of great interest and very useful.

I found the conference extremely useful and it was well thought out to meet the needs of the student service sector.

Very impressed with the quality of the conference. One of the best I have attended.
