Enterprise Identity Management Conference 2012: Delegate Feedback

Whitehall Media ran its sixth national Enterprise Identity Management Conference on 6 November, 2012, at the Hotel Russell, London. The event ran smoothly, as expected, and the general consensus was that November’s event was the biggest and best yet. But how can you objectively judge the success of the conferences? Well, Whitehall Media firmly believes that the only way you can get a truly accurate reflection of any conference or event is by looking at the feedback received from delegates. We’re pleased to say that the feedback we received was largely positive and that the event was as well received as we’d hoped. Here’s what the delegates had to say.
