What our delegates say...
Here's what some of our previous conference delegates thought about our events.
"I enjoyed the content of the presentations - from latest research and "academic" to applications in business and school settings. The mix of speakers is good - real human beings with weaknesses trying to be better. The event has a good mix of formality and informality. The pace of the day is very well managed. The venue is a good location with good facilities."
"Excellent speakers, thought provoking and challenging to listen and hear insights into challenging the norm and utilising a simple science which is focused on people to make a difference in both life and business and importantly a science which works!!"
"The balance between Experienced Leaders from industry, Current academic thinking and some thinking around applying Behavioural management techniques was perfect. It was good to here the consistent themes running through the day I have been to several conferences and feel really privileged to hear some of the big hitting speakers from Industry you are able to persuade to speak."
"Good speakers, diverse attendance, good networking opportunity, content thought provoking and ability to be deployed practically."
"Interesting topics delivered in fun dynamic way."
“The seminar refreshed some dormant knowledge and gave me an insight to apply behavioural science techniques in to other processes such as planning and incident investigation. The speakers were excellent throughout the day. I can certainly use what I have learned at this seminar immediately in our own organisation.”
"I liked the format of short, informative talks which kept my attention even after an excellent lunch!"
