Our face-to-face UK conference is back for 2023!

As much as we enjoyed the virtual conferences we delivered in 2021, we know how much our customers and Certified Instructors value the networking options and overall experience that an in-person event brings.

So, we’re excited to announce that this year’s conference will be in Manchester on Thursday 25th May and is called Collaborating for Change - Understanding Behaviour Challenges: How Experts by Experience Improve Outcomes.

We’ll be bringing together experts by experience, and their stories of positive outcomes, from across the education, healthcare and social care sectors and beyond.

As we’ve done previously, existing customers will receive added value to their CPI training and will be able to get a discounted rate when tickets are booked early.
