A truly inspiring and useful day, I’ve taken away a lot of actions and challenged a lot of assumptions but the best thing about it is that I now have a peer group for support going forwards.

A completely rewarding day, I found it covered key subjects within a business and by implementing them it will really drive our business forward.

Scott Martin, Raedex Consortium

Sam Crocker, Conversion Factory
