Read a powerful testimonial about the NCCI Annual Conference from Mark Robinson, Head of Change at the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland. “Presentations were many and varied, all were extremely interesting and relevant, and were delivered by excellent speakers,” said Robinson.

I was able to make excellent and personal connections with participants and I really got a strong sense of community in this group. People went out of their way to help, offer advice, and [help me] make links with others I would benefit from meeting.
