The obvious engagement of the attendees, and the wealth of ideas that were tabled that day, has helped us to shape the programme for this year. Both Positive Impact and Smyle are delighted that this team of motivated and innovative companies are working with us in 2015, and we would like to thank them all for their much valued support."
