ICG Conference November 2016

ICG Conference 2016

ICG created this Conference to help providers to tackle the very real issue of recruitment and retention of staff. Despite unexpected snowy conditions on the day and the resulting poor travelling conditions, it was well attended and fulfilled its promise of providing a good range of new ideas and approaches to finding and keeping staff.

Plenty of time for networking at the exhibition


Our keynote speaker, Neil Eastwood, founder of Sticky People, did not disappoint and came with a wealth of knowledge on the subject.
