Federation Conference Liverpool 2018


  

 

The Conference was judged to be a success by attendees, with many positive comments on the choice of venue, the friendly and helpful stewarding and the three powerful keynote speakers – Terry Waite CBE, Professor Helen Pankhurst and Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE.

Outgoing President Susan Biggs spoke of Federation achievements during the year, particularly the registration of SIGBI as a charity in England and Wales.  On the final day she introduced incoming President Sue Williams, whose theme during her year will be “Think on it”, aiming to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health and well-being, with emphasis on how these issues affect women and girls.
