2016 Conference Feedback

My thanks to all of you who responded to my request for post conference feedback. It was probably the last thing you needed to find time for after unpacking and deciding where to go next with any new skills developed in the workshops! I will not attempt to summarise here all the points made, but assure you they will all be reported either to the venue or the Exec committee, as appropriate. Your comments are valued in our aim to continue to improve the conference weekend.

The many compliments about the speakers, masterclass and tutors are much appreciated. The main consensus was that Reaseheath is worth returning to at some future date, despite the spread out nature of the site proving problematic for some (shame we cannnot guarantee dry weather). If we do return we will try to ensure: the heating is working effectively, formal meal service is quicker, we have some sort of weekend IT support to supplement the initial testing and run through that they did provide.

For future conferences I will be: looking at better supplier signage to supplement the supplier info in the packs, more detailed advice of what is and isn't provided in the accommodation, larger name badge font, providing accommodation block plans, checking Wi-fi limitations.

I hope to see many of you again next year at Newton Rigg.
