& PAST TRAINING/
Planning for our annual networking conference begins almost as soon as the previous event finishes. Reviewing the feedback from attendees is key, as is input from the entire team. It’s a large undertaking however the impact of this event is evident not only from the buzz on the day but from the connections made and the ongoing comments received throughout the year.
The theme last year focused on collaboration and partnership working – ‘Working Together for All of Us.’ The event offered opportunities to reflect on what makes collaborative partnerships work, the challenges and opportunities being faced, and the practical tools that enable individuals and organisations to work together for the benefit of their communities.
The event was opened by a Keynote Panel discussing what they considered to be key in enabling effective partnership working. The Year of the Young Person was celebrated by our Keynote Speaker in the afternoon – Emmie Main from Communic18 who described the work her group has been involved in with partners and organisations to ensure young voices are heard.
With a variety of workshops and a vibrant marketplace with 25 stalls a great day was had by all.
