    We will be coming down you way. Please be patient. There is only so much we can do and the funds to do it. Each conf costs us at least 5k and takes a hell of a lot of organising. We did try and get one sorted out for Bristol last year, but due to politics it fell through

    Unless it's the tourist season then you're lucky if it gets you 10 cream teas with scones.

    Hi

    My boss says I can put it down as CPD/training if I provide her with an email with reasons why it will benefit me and my team to attend. Has anyone else done this and if so would they be willing to share?

    Thanks
