Annual Review of Employment Law 2020: Digital Bundle

This year’s Annual Review of Employment Law conference is now over, and the feedback has been fantastic. Many of our customers were initially apprehensive about the conference taking place online, but we’ve received amazing feedback about how engaging the sessions were and how brilliant the online platform was.

"Excellent event and having it online was actually much better and more interactive than usual for me as I was able to direct message and have my questions answered. The digital learning pack will be invaluable! It was like 2 days of HR Therapy! Fabulous event!"
Noeleen Farnan, Director, Business Primis

"I wanted to congratulate the Legal Island team on an amazing virtual experience- It has been the best virtual event I have been to- the technology you used worked fantastically, and I loved the tone of the whole event."
Chris Lillie, Group HR Director, The SHS Group

"Speakers were excellent and covered a great amount. I found this experience very good and would hope that in future conferences etc could carry on in this format so save time and travel."
Evelyn Scott, Finance Manager, Causeway & Mid Ulster Women's Aid

For anyone who missed out we’ve compiled 5 of our favourite takeaways from the conference (including snippets from Mark McAllister and Louise McAloon’s sessions) into a short video.
