Comments received from those who attended previous conferences:

"It was by far the best conference I’ve ever been to and my brain is still buzzing and fizzing with excitement and inspiration."

"wonderfully well organized, and such a pleasure to be at and to meet up with so many good friends"

"It's been the best thing I've done all year. And given me such inspiration to meet so many generous practitioners with ideas and tips in such diverse areas. I've even been writing solidly since I got back too!"

"It made a real difference to where I currently am with things. And it's been wonderful to connect with warm, generous people and the fabulous work that NAWE does."  

"I love the diversity of approaches. I very much enjoyed the Conference and have brought home much food for thought."
