Thank you for organising the indemnity topic with guest speaker Sharon Brennan - really helpful, interesting and important topic for me. Discussions through the meeting were absolutely helpful as well. So again - THANK YOU.

Once again a big thank you for hosting the coffee catch up for dental nurses on Saturday 28th November. It was a really enjoyable afternoon, great to have the opportunity to chat with you all! The presentation on indemnity by Sharon Brennan was both useful and enlightening, certainly highlighted a few areas to double check when considering other sources of insurance. Good presentation, useful subject and great company!

The event Coffee CatchUp was so delightful, I was really impressed. Thanks for the 10% discounts on coffee you sent to me. I’m really looking forward to joining on the next event.

I've done so much cpd over the years and attended courses, study days and webinars but never had one on indemnity insurance before. What a great topic. I found it very helpful and took lots of notes. The speaker was very informative and I've come away reassured. I've told others about this webinar and they can tell that I got a lot out of it too. Thank you very much.

I really enjoyed the coffee morning and found everyone very friendly, I’ll look forward to the next one.

Both the content and the presentation of the CPD course on Indemnity ,given by Sharon, were concise, enjoyable and relevant to my position. The Q &A session was unhurried and able to answer any concerns there might have been on this involved subject . An enjoyable couple of hours.
