  • This was my first attendance at the conference, and speakers and topics were really informative and useful. And the organisation of the event was second-to-none. I look foward to the next one.
  • Well done to you all, a fantastic conference.  It was my 1st, did not really know what to expect … WOW, a great line up, a lot of great takeaways (not just for the day job) & all in day & a half
  • Heartfelt thanks for an excellent conference in Carton House this week. The quality of the speakers was only matched by the professional management and friendly disposition of the ICBE team.   Well done and continued success.
  • Well done again on the quality of the conference. Clearly a lot of planning and hard work to organise such a wide array of top class presenters. I found it great use of my time and very useful.
  • Thanks for a great two days, extremely engaging and the whole event is a credit to the ICBE and everyone involved.  Looking forward to next year already.
  • A big thanks for the Conference over the last few days with lots of great speakers on truly inspirational journeys.
  • I want to thank you and congratulate you all for a job well done at the conference over the last few days.  The line up and quality of speakers was really good with a great mix of experience and some thought provoking topics.  The venue was excellent giving an opportunity for networking without being too confined. These events don’t organize themselves and it was obvious from the moment we arrived to the wrap up after the very last speaker that a huge amount of planning and preparation had been put in to ensure a fantastic experience for all the attendees.
