We had overwhelmingly positive feedback from the last event – and the following is just one example: “Just a brief message to thank you and say how much I enjoyed the Astbury Conversation. It was one of the best meetings I've been to in recent years - a great set of speakers (some in areas I know well and others who widened my horizons), a very positive environment and a length of meeting that fits in well with busy teaching schedules." - Delegate from 2016 Astbury Conversation.
