Well organised. Duration of the course and the individual lectures was ideal. Interesting topics and speakers. Use of interactive methods kept you engaged and thinking throughout

Variety of topics. All the speakers delivered high quality lectures and I learned so much. I found I was completely engaged all the way through the day and did not want to miss anything!

Wide spectrum of issues covered and something for everyone. General updates should be encouraged in our world of ever narrowing specialisation
