BUFDG Annual Conference 2014
University of Leicester
6th - 8th April 2014
The annual BUFDG 2014 conference took place between 6th and 8th April, at the University of Leicester, where we welcomed over 120 delegates to a fascinating event. After some social activities on the Sunday afternoon, the delegates were treated to a 'Taste of Leicestershire' dinner and a presentation about Richard III that left the audience in awe. Monday was chaired by Simon Jack, Business and Economics presenter on BBC Radio 4 Today programme, and started with a panel discusssion, included the 'power hour' and was followed by workshop sessions.
The gala dinner at the National Space Centre provided the evening entertainment, and Tuesday started with a video of the conference and a session that still has delegates talking about it. Damian Hughes explained the benefits of 'Liquid Thinking' and left some of the audience in tears, but the majority inspired and thoughtful of the things they could do to make their workplace better and their business more effective. We defy anyone not to be affected by Damian’s talk which was one of the highlights of the conference.
