A well organised conference with key national speakers on current workforce developments and challenges within todays climate. Thought provoking and informative speakers and innovative practices - a great networking event for all nursing leaders.

Lead Nurse, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust

Well worth attending, came away with new contacts for sharing best practice and some great ideas to take forward locally.

Practice Development and Standard Lead, Cambridgeshire And Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust

Very informative conference with excellent speakers who all work at a very senior level.

Head of Clinical Services Bucks, Rennie Grove Hospice Care

This was an excellent event that was extremely insightful, to share best practice with other organisations. It was aspirational to see a number of speakers achieving improved patient care through HR initiatives.

Ward Nurse Manager, Mersey Care NHS Trust

This was a well structured and informative event. There was a good variance of speakers and topics - that are poignant and relevant to all.

Acting Deputy Director of Nursing, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust
