Discerning Best Practice from 3 Types of Review in 1 Event

In a world where connection & engagement takes place on a virtual platform it has never been more important for us to get together to shape the next generation of reviews.

For those who understand the need for reviews to embrace new challenges in the post pandemic era when professionals once again begin to engage with their clients more directly

 >  practical workshops   >  rich networking opportunities   >  cross pollination of ideas

The only event to combine rich conversations, networking & the intimacy of an in person experience online. For commissioners, review participants & reviewers who want to achieve highly engaging review experiences taking the best practice from across 3 types of review.

In an era in which executing assessments was more challenging than ever & opportunities to learn from practice became a luxury, not a necessity.
