    Had this through on an email today.

    Don't know anything about the company or where they're based (Luton ?) or where the event is but it may be of interest to a few on here.

    Reckon this is just a chance for them to put a hard sell on contractors. Looked into using Tarpon as an umbrella and their fees were a bit on the excessive side and reviews on Tarpon and it's directors aren't glowing (they pop up on contractor forums).

    Unless you live near where it's on and it doesn't cost you anything (ie, you don't have to take time off to go) it might be worth a look, but there'll probably be better and more impartial advice on the tinterweb.
    Certifications: ITIL Foundation and Practitioner (S&R)
