Delegate feedback…

“The Conference was a brilliant day and was thoroughly enjoyed by myself and my Colleague that attended.”

“The NBCS events are always very well put together with excellent content and great networking opportunities.”

“Great event organisation, a really natural flow between agenda points and no awkward “waiting” around. Really pleasant atmosphere and refreshments were brilliant, we all wanted for nothing.”
