Vicky Pryce was lovely and got great feedback - hope to use her again another time.
Vicky opened conference. As suspected she was brilliantly on message and very relevant. She has probably one of the biggest brains of anyone I have had the pleasure listening to. Her capacity to retain facts and cite relevant examples is second to none. She launched conference with strong statement that the APMP is a truly professional body addressing strategic issues, and not just about smooth ‘feel good’ speakers. Excellent!
