CommOCEAN 2020 aims to provide communication skills and inspiration to communicators across a range of experience levels. Many sessions are suitable for all, but some elements of the programme will run simultaneously and are tailored for those looking to build their communications skills and to those looking to move their communications to the next level. Delegates will be asked to choose which sessions to attend as part of their joining instructions, which will be sent in early November.

The Conference will start on Monday 30th November at 15:00 with registration and an evening ice breaker session. The conference programme will commence on Tuesday 1st December and finish on Wednesday 2nd December.
