Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we've made the decision to hold this conference as a virtual event.

We'll help you to develop your approach throughout this period of uncertainty to create supportive and effective workplaces.

So, what can you expect at a virtual conference?

We know how important it is to stay up-to-date on and in contact with peers from across the sector during this time, even if that isn't face to face. You'll still receive all of the valuable content, collaboration and networking you've come to expect from this event, which you can access from wherever you are.

We've trimmed the length of each session to provide you with a punchy online experience, allowing you to pick and choose content so you can shape your own day.

The day will be packed full of essential content, presentations and discussion to help inform your strategies. After each session there will be time for live Q&A, so you can quiz the experts.

A number of sessions will be held as virtual facilitated roundtables in small groups for in-depth conversations face-to-face.

One of the main draws of a conference is the interaction you get with fellow delegates and speakers alike, and a virtual conference is no different. You'll still be able to ask questions, share your ideas and discuss challenges as if you were in the same room.

  • Pose questions to the speakers during the live Q&A at the end of each session
  • Instant message delegates one-to-one or via video call
  • Contribute to discussion boards with speakers and delegates to unpick key topics

You'll also have the opportunity to meet with partners to the sector in the virtual exhibition. Chat via instant messenger and book appointments for video calls on the day or at a later date to suit your needs.

Reduced cost

To ensure that content is as accessible as possible, we've introduced new virtual conference prices at a significantly reduced rate, starting at £280 for NHF members.

Content on demand

All of the content will be recorded and be available on demand for three months after the conference. That means you can access content from all of the sessions, not just the ones you watch live, to maximise the value of your ticket.
