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
