This year is set to bring together more senior professionals than ever before. Take a look at what our previous delegates have to say and decide, can you afford to miss it?

The quality of the group of people you managed to bring together was excellent. You must have worked very hard to ensure you got the right calibre of people that were able to articulate on key issues. That does not happen very often in “ECA Land".
