With a reputation for defying convention when it comes to staging our annual conferences, we are again set to break new ground with our 2015 event.
When we were presented with the opportunity of having sole use of a resort for the duration of our conference, it was too good an opportunity to miss; we know through experience that some of the most successful conferences we have held have featured a clear and defined central hub, bringing all delegates together under one roof. This time however we have gone one step further with the Sea Garden Resort in Bodrum creating the ultimate conference hub.
In relation to the business programme, we will be delivering sessions that are interesting and highly relevant for all our member partners with a strong emphasis on technology and networking as well as real and practical examples of member partners making material changes in their businesses.
We are acutely aware that many of you go to considerable lengths to find the time for you and your staff to attend our annual conference and, as evidenced in the membership opinion survey, you rate the quality of the overall conference programme as the greatest conference benefit. I can assure you that those expectations will be exceeded in Bodrum.
We have also announced two keynote speakers in Baroness Susan Greenfield who is one of the world’s leading authorities on neuroscience and in particular, the effects technology is having on our brains and the impact of this in the workforce. Our second keynote speaker is writer, journalist and political commentator Jeremy Paxman who will be addressing our conference shortly after the general election; Jeremy is heading up Channel 4’s coverage of the election.
Recognising that the social programme is also a major element of the conference, we have created events that are very different in format but all take full advantage of the stunning backdrop that we have at our disposal.
Above all, we are confident that given Sea Garden is an all-inclusive resort, we have also created a conference package that makes it affordable for you to join us in Bodrum in May – we can assure you that it will be an event to remember.
