Calibre of talent

“The scale of WCOA gives us the opportunity to invite speakers from around the globe who may have not had chance to speak at or attend conferences in this region before” says Olwyn Connolly, Co-chair World Congress Executive Committee.

“We expect that the content delivered by our list of speakers will inform and inspire, and we are proud to put the calibre of this talent in front of our members.

  “The program is looking to cover the key issues facing the profession today, and address them in an insightful and practical way. So we don't just talk about them, but learn how to create solutions collaboratively.”
