Symposium Dinner

We would be delighted if you could join us, and our two keynote speakers, for dinner at an informal bar/restaurant on the evening of Tuesday 5th June.  This will be held at Nancy’s Bordello which is just a short five minute walk from the Business Clinic.  Although we are unable to fund this dinner the menu is quite extensive and relatively affordable! Please click here to see the menu.

If you would like to attend the dinner can you please let us know by Tuesday 29th May by contacting

We are very much looking forward to seeing you all in June.
