Oxford UIDP Summit and workshops: 31 July - 2 August

25 Jun 2019

Reflecting on a fantastic couple of days at the Praxis Auril Conference, it confirmed my view that there is no substitute for spending time, away from the office, discussing the important things I am worrying about, learning from others, constructing solutions in the bar and meeting people I wouldn’t ordinarily meet.
