What to expect

Want to know what will be discussed at the big yak on 17 September?

So do we! As it’s an unconference, the content is decided by you, the attendees, on the day. We’re expecting 150 professional communicators to come together, shape the agenda and enjoy being together.

Our facilitator Benjamin Ellis will be guiding us through our fun fill day. If you’ve never attended an unconference before, don’t worry, he’ll be on hand to make sure things go smoothly.
