Following this successful conference the presentations from most of the speakers have been published on these web pages. At our 2010 Conference, we were awaiting the outcome of a General Election and beginning to prepare our responses to the anticipated crisis in public sector funding. One of our keynote speakers, Tim Marshall, CEO, JANET(UK), predicted a 25% cut over the term of the next parliament and he was on the money.We are now in the eye of the storm, and our Conference will provide answers and solutions as well as opportunities to share the pain with colleagues who are facing the same issues.For this year’s event we have decided to focus the programme on The Marshall Plan and we have engaged an impressive array of experts to address the five key themes Tim set out so coherently in 2010:
