Annual Changes Conferences
home Our annual changes event has gone from face to face to purely online yet is still generating amazing feedback scores (our 23/24 changes event was attended by around 300 people and achieve an amazing 9.1/10). I do miss the face to face events (and the event goodies) but we are still getting the information out to people whilst saving travelling time and being better for the environment so we expect it to continue this way.

The slides from the event have been emailed out but if you did not receive a copy then login in, go to Slides on the menu and they can be downloaded from there.
