We’ve got a great group of industry experts together to address an important but much ignored issue in our lives, and we’re very excited by the discussion and debate that this will provoke. The industry experts that are speaking are from organisations that are leaders in their fields, so the event will be both exceptionally well informed and extremely insightful. We’re really looking forward to hearing the different viewpoints over the day, and learning what the future holds for us”, said George Wigley, Industry Club's co-president.
