Testimonials

A huge thank you to you all for all your extra special efforts this year to make the Joint Planning Law Conference, so special. 

The run up to the conference went as well as ever – thank you Paula for all your attention to the finer detail – I couldn’t do it without you. 

At the event, everything was exceptional, the checking-in, all the help we received moving our conference office gear here there and everywhere! Thank you to Chris and all the porters, housekeeping and yard staff for this. Accommodating the cold spell and letting us use, last minute, the foyer of the chapel – which was very well received by guests – such a special evening. I look forward to our venue visit next year!

I just wanted to thank you for all your help and support – and also for the tremendous help and support from staff at New College – for our recent Oncolytic Virus Conference. Staying in New was like a dream come true for many of our delegates (me included), and everyone was so helpful that the whole thing went exactly like a dream.
