Feedback from previous attendees of ICAEW events.
A fantastic array of subjects delivered by engaging and knowledgeable presenters from varied backgrounds.
I didn’t know what to expect from a virtual conference, but I’m happy to report that it was great. Attending something like this from home, I was afraid that I would get distracted, but it wasn’t the case. There was a varied list of topics & brilliant speakers.
The forensic conference is an enjoyable way to gain technical knowledge and updates in relevant areas of law and accountancy.
The conference was superb - it provided some excellent topics and speakers all from the safety of home. The online platform also meant that you could get on with normal work in between watching the sessions of interest.
