We hope everyone who attended the conference yesterday enjoyed the event. For those who were unable to be there, the conference was livestreamed on YouTube thanks to Council member Troy Baisden - the complete videos are below. Unfortunately some scheduled speakers couldn't make it due to fog and other delays, so some of the programme changed at the last minute.
