First class seminar.  Very informative and thought-provoking , also good to network with other clerks.  Very good speakers.  Excellent lunch and venue.  Some real nuggets of information!  Excellent and informative.  An absolute lifeline!  Very good, as always.  Taken away thoughts and ideas and practical advice.  The advice and information has been invaluable.  Great benefit in listening to other councillors, clerks and their experiences.  Enjoyable and informative as a new councillor.  I now know more than when I arrived.  Always good and very useful to keep up to date.  Lunch always yummy, thank you for such a great seminar.  An excellent seminar, highly informative in an excellent venue.  Very clear information.  Approachable people delivering content.
