I went to open the Bursars' and Financial Administrators' Conference at Elland Road...

The Conference had an amazing turnout... around 250 colleagues from across the city were there and it was buzzing. The programme was brilliant... a great set of workshops, an interesting exhibition and some inputs from Andrew Webster, Team Leader in the Value for Money Unit at the DfES and Doug Meeson, Chief Officer, Financial Management with the Council.

The Conference was brilliantly organised by Fiona Meeson and colleagues from Financial Services... a bit like a military operation with a hugely successful outcome! Interestingly, feedback from last year had requested more workshops, healthier options at lunch time and a pudding... life is full of those delightful contradictions!
