This is the second Beech conference that I have attended. It absolutely proves the value of being able to get out of the office and think about how organisations can develop. The conference also demonstrates how these organisations can be coached by others with specialisms which Beech bring and how valuable that is in progressing ones operating and strategy in a very demanding world.
