The Conference was very well received as shown in the participant evaluation. Responses to the presentations were extremely positive. On a four point scale of “poor, fair, good or excellent”, almost all responses were ‘good’ or ‘excellent’. Speaker ratings were uniformly high with 80% and more of the participants saying ‘good' or 'excellent' to most presentations.
A sample of the open-ended comments show the appreciation of participants.
We thank the wonderful Organising Committee, Jann Farmer-Hailey, Karen Finlayson, Sue Sinko, David Hastie, Chris Grima-Farrell and all who contributed to such a successful conference; speakers, organisers and participants. Well done.
