Why did I become a Planner?

This day of the festival is dedicated to you. A chance to think about the profession that you belong to, and how much you contribute to society through your role.

The day will have a focus on your well-being (because being a planner is not easy), some top tips for those skills we rely on to get through each day as a planner but aren’t always taught, and some time to focus on your career.

There will be connection with your peers, and presentations from outside the profession that recognise what you do.

Join us on Friday to re-energise, remember why we all belong to this profession, and celebrate all that you achieve. The right way to end any festival.
