Testimonial

This is the third conference that I’ve been to.  The Institute for OD conferences are always great to attend. Not only are the team very ethical, welcoming and knowledgeable, they also have very interesting clients. It’s really great to be able to network with them and find out what sort of organisational issues they are facing. The Institute for Organisational Development provides fantastic speakers so I always learn a lot.
