HFN Conference 2017 Feedback

"I am writing to say I thoroughly enjoyed the HFN conference last week and made some really good contacts across Hampshire as a result. It was such a well organised event and both inspiring and informative".

"First time at your conference was absolutely fascinating! Great speakers and Dr Sigman’s research and insight must have had an affect on everyone in that room. Met some wonderful people too :)"

"I wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed I was with the conference yesterday. It was very well organised, there was excellent attendance and some thought provoking presentations. So my thanks and well done to you and HFN committee members for organising such a valuable event".
