We hope you enjoyed the Eastern Annual Conference 2024 delivered jointly with SDN (Skills Development Network) and ONF (One NHS Finance) which took place 26-28 February.  The conference was available both in person and online with day one being our designated virtual workshop day.

It was an exciting event with a line-up of fantastic speakers, including national and local finance leaders, motivational speakers and finance practitioners from the East of England.  We were delighted to welcome over 170 people to attend in person at Wyboston, with many more accessing online and attending the virtual workshops.  Many hours of CPD were delivered, alongside providing people with the opportunity to meet with colleagues from across the patch and build important networks for the future.

Building on the success of the inaugural HFMA Branch awards, we presented our 2024 Eastern awards across seven categories.  We also celebrated those organisations which achieved Towards Excellence Accreditation during the year.

Thank you to all our sponsors who helped make the event such a success.

Slides from the conference can be accessed via the links in the programme below.  Recordings will be added where available
