Delegate feedback

Great to have a lot of examples that I can discuss with colleagues in my trust.
As a first conference it set the scene very well in explaining the why and what is currently being done/looked at across the NHS family. The speakers and presentations were all good too.
All [sessions] had great ideas to take forward.
Very well structured and I took lots away from it.
Overall, I enjoyed the event, the agenda was well-structured and did not include repetition of topics from the speakers. The speakers had a wealth of knowledge which was shared with the participants.
Really interesting. Learned a lot.
A good variety of speakers covering all aspects of Net Zero. It is useful to hear how other colleagues are managing the challenges.
Very good series of topics with excellent speakers and well chaired.
This was a really interesting, informative, important and very professional conference with exceptional speakers.
This is a land mark event, hopefully the first of many to come.
