Feedback from eXchange 2014

I am a social work manager and during the past 27 years I have attended a number of conferences. eXchange 2014 was one of the most inspiring and useful days.


Feedback survey from last year’s conference revealed that:

  • People felt more confident in their work.
  • Delegates went on to a higher level of partnership working
  • Services are increasingly being shaped by those who use them
