As such, the ASBCI has made this area a key focus and I am delighted that we are able to offer this conference to members and non-members alike, with a host of established and new speakers on the day. In March 2015, the ‘Fit Factor’ conference was very successful; I see the event on October 11th as continuing the theme of addressing developments in this vital area.”
