How will participants and their organisation benefit from this event?

IES Virtual Discussion Group events are designed to simulate the intimate and interactive experience that you might experience at physical event conference tables. Delegate numbers for these events are intentionally limited to 8 delegates per session, allowing for richer opportunities to hear the latest evidence on ‘what works’ and to share experiences with practitioners in other organisations.
