Results are in

Well it’s taken far longer than it should have but we’ve now been through all the evaluation forms received about the conference. Thanks for all the compliments and useful suggestions. And well done to all who presented as presentations were rated very good by all but one person who still thought they were good.

There is clearly appetite for a similar event next year, with a clear majority saying they would attend a similar conference and recommend it to others. People really appreciated the friendly atmosphere, chance to meet other researchers and hear from senior academics.

By way of opportunities to build on the event, there were mixed views on whether this site will continue to be useful. It will obviously depend on people wanting to put relevant information here. There was also a suggestion that visits to case studies would be a nice follow-up activity.

So it’s over to you. If any one would like to take up the reigns to plan a similar conference for next year we can pass on what we’ve learnt, and the feedback from attendees.

The conference email address is no longer being checked regularly so if you’ve a suggestion please post a comment here.
