I took a lot of positives from the conference, but the bottom line is that there is a gulf of understanding and often language between the sectors. Despite this I was struck by the desire to close this, to learn more about how to work together and what is going on and the opportunities for building real relationships. To this end we at CCVS will commit to a number of actions.

Feedback from the workshops

The conference table discussions were designed to allow both the VCS and the business attendees to mix and explore issues, there was no formal feedback however groups were encouraged to record thoughts and issues on sheets on each table. These can be found here. There were a number of key points that were drawn out from discussions and presentations these include
