The Chairman's Forum

The Chairman's Forums is a new type of ICR event, enabling us to use the Forum and Workshop formats to address topical issues that do not fall entirely within the scope of our existing Forum areas. These are often areas that are developing quickly, or arise at the interfaces between more established roles or disciplines. Each Forum brings together speakers who are in touch with the day to changes that occur . Each Forum follows roughly the same format a mixture of Presentations, workshops, open & facilitated discussions - A light Lunch , Tea/Coffee and of course the opportunity to network with like minded people who share your interests.
