Attending recruitment conferences and exhibitions is a great way of exploring new and benefiting ways of managing your company, not to mention all the freebies you can pick up! Yet many professionals within the industry ignore these valuable resources, despite everything they offer.

It's the assumption (or the image if you like) that these events boast an array of ill-fitting suits and lame presentations which clearly look as though they have been put together by microsoft paint. But take it from me, this is just simply not the case!

Technology has revolutionised the 'conference' into something more than just a clip board and a squeaky microphone. It's a chance to be inspired, gain some invaluable information and rub shoulders with some really interesting people. Speaking for Broadbean, we are particularly excited about all of the events we attend (check out our events page if you don't believe us!) as they allow us to learn and grow as a business.

Over the next quarter there are some really amazing events taking place over the country and beyond, and we want to share with you some of our whereabouts so you can jump onboard and take advantage of the many resources around you.
