Highlights of 2018 Conference
The theme for the 2018 conference was “The robots are coming: embracing technology and change”. Our keynote speakers and breakout sessions provided AP professionals with insights into the new technologies available to the AP industry including automation, AI and robotics. These technologies, as highlighted by our speakers, are to be celebrated as opposed to feared and they got us and the audience excited for what is to come!
One of the greatest moments of the event was also Claire Lomas MBE’ amazingly inspirational story, as our Key Note Speaker at the 2018 Annual Conference.
Claire spoke about the split second that changed her life, and the dark times that followed, making it an incredibly moving and unforgettable talk.
