We have teamed up with some exciting speakers from within the industry to bring you interesting and high-quality content. We will have the opportunity to work together in the Action Groups, sharing thoughts and ideas as we did last year. At the end of day one, we will invite you to join a small "hang out" group where we can keep the discussion going in a little less formal atmosphere. Make sure you have a glass of wine or other favourite drink to hand and let's dive deep!
