What you said about last year

It was a great conference - well thought through, great content and speakers, engaging and relaxed. Well worth the trip; I will be keen to come again.

- Antonia

Thank you so much for putting on such a wonderful conference! It was so insightful, and I have come back to work invigorated with so many ideas. Will be making small changes that hopefully have a big impact...And next year I will bring a colleague or two so that we can learn together. Thanks again.

- Kate

The keynote speakers were all different but all interesting. My only gripe is there was so much content that it was hard to remember it all. Thanks for providing the slides. I took notes, now I just need to marry the two together. Thanks for putting on this conference. Causeis staff - you did a fabulous job - well done. I hope you are celebrating and doing high-fives (now that you have recovered!!)

- Kathryn

Thank you for an amazing conference. So many high-value tracks at the same time, it was difficult to choose!

- Eline
