The Life Conference and Exhibition was a huge success, with 970 delegates attending. We trust that those who attended found it useful and enjoyable.
The conference opened with HBOS whistle-blower Paul Moore, who provided an interesting and personal story that raised many professionalism issues.
Journalist and author Michael Blastland gave an entertaining talk on communicating mortality risk, perhaps tempting the audience to use sound for their latest mortality assumptions.
It would be difficult to single out one particular workshop session, as the level of participation and debate amongst them all was outstanding.
We closed on a high point with former Labour chancellor Alastair Darling offering his perspective on the current state of the economy, followed by an excellent question and answer session.
Attention now turns to next year's conference in Birmingham. The committee is seeking up to three new members to help shape the conference. For more details, see the volunteer article (p12) or email [email protected]
