2014 Conference Feedback:

"Really excellent speakers who provoked thought at all levels. Can't wait till next year to hear from people who are at the fore front of their fields."

"The mix between theory and practice was great. So much was covered and in a relaxed way. The location was lovely, lots of space and relaxed environment."

"So much packed into one day - both the theory and practical ideas and resources to use. Thank you!"

"It made me rethink the way in which I taught and question my existing use of concrete material."
