With over 300 attending, we have had much positive feedback for the event, and are currently looking towards our 2018 Event which will be held at the NEC again on Monday 21st May 2018.

As previously our CPD event was supported by Balens and our Insurance partners, ensuring exceptional value for you, our clients.

We had some truly inspirational speakers this year, including our key note speaker Jo Marchant, the highly acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of the investigative book Cure, awarded Best Book of the year/2016 by a number of respected journals, including the New York Post, Sunday Times and Economist.

This year we also had one of the world's leading natural health authorities Jayney Goddard from the CMA speaking on business skills, plus Robert Vekerk (Alliance of Natural Health International), Nicola Brough (Warwick University) and Paul Grant (BSG Solicitors).

Recordings from this year’s event will be available soon. Recordings of lectures from previous years can be found via the links below.
