ABPCO 2016 AGM and Conference

5th of February 2016  - The ICC, Birmingham

With both Rose and Madalina being proud ABPCO members, OD&V was delighted to support the Association with the planning and delivery of its 2016 AGM and Conference hosted by corporate member, The ICC in Birmingham. OD&V was involved in operations, logistics and content development, working closely with Association Director, Heather Lishman, during the planning process leading up to this 1-day event for 70, with optional welcome dinner the night before.

In addition to the AGM component, the conference featured expert speakers on ABPCO topics of interest including Trailblazer Apprenticeships and the Living Wage Campaign. Along with specialised expertise and through their vast network of connections, OD&V was pleased to be able to enlist the involvement of professional conference host, Mary Rhodes, journalist and broadcaster; inspiring and entertaining keynote speaker, Atlantic rower & World champion in Dragon Boat Racing, Rachel Smith of Caroline Rose Management and Laura Brodrick of Think Big Picture who created an impressive 2by1 meter graphic story-board of the day’s proceedings. Rose & Madalina were more than happy to act as the local liaison point between all stakeholders involved and delighted to showcase the city and its venue as a top conference destination to ABPCO members.
