Feedback from 2018 Conference

``Good mix of topics with speakers from range of professions including those with direct experience of bushfire. Well organised, great catering, a very good and affordable conference.``
2018 Conference Delegate
``I learned a lot from disciplines I would not normally have day-to-day contact with, e.g. the insight from architects for design quality implications to designing for bushfire risk...``
2018 Conference Delegate
``The different mix of professionals involved creates an event where a wide range of views can be conveyed, countering blinkered thinking. When all collaborate we get good policy.``
2018 Conference Delegate
