MANs Meeting

We’ve made a few small changes to how the MANs meeting is set out, which we hope will you will find an improvement. We’ve looked at our past evaluation and we’ve thought about the fact that we lose over 60% of our audience between workshops so, taking your feedback on board, this time we’re only offering a choice of two workshops which will only be delivered once. We’re also giving you an option of selecting “no workshop” if you prefer to ease the booking process. We’ve increased our number of speakers, allowed a little more time for their presentations and given more time to networking. Our biggest change is that we’ve combined with Public Health to offer a regular session on answering your questions around mental health and young people, which promises to be very interesting. We hope that this reflects people’s needs, doesn’t feel as rushed as it has done in the past and that it proves successful.

It’s a very full and very interesting agenda as you will see below:
