Does what it says on the tin...

Entry, Exit & Enforcement Manager, Ofqual

The conference is always a great place to network in order to improve areas of business. It always re-motivates me to return to work and drive the Anti-Fraud message forward for another year. This years was particularly good, the content was relevant and useful. The venue was excellent and the organisation was very good.
