“just to say, as a relatively new SOA member, how much I enjoyed and got out of my first CWIG Conference. Well-organised, useful and stimulating (and of course passionate at times)” John Pilkington
“I’d been a bit apprehensive about going on my own to such a big event, but I needn’t have worried. People were friendly and inclusive and I met lots of people, many of whom I’m sure I’ll keep in touch with” Sue Reid
“Everything came together so brilliantly – beautiful campus, packed and stimulating programme, distinguished speakers, great company and even excellent weather” Linda Newbery
“The conference was fantastic – what a buzz!” Mara Bergman
“What a wonderful breath of fresh air to see so many intelligent and articulate people engaging each other in the issues” Jamie Scallion
“packed full of inspirational talks – it was a great get together of kindred spirits, who otherwise spend their time creating in their separate worlds” Shana Nieberg-Suschitzky
“I came away from the conference feeling part of a community which is extremely important to people like myself who work on their own for most of the time.” Mike Brownlow
