Lisa Sturge of Laughterlines Coaching will provide an interactive session with delegates, looking at the importance of laughter in everyday life.

- Ian King of RCN Welfare Rights and Guidance taking questions from delegates on their welfare concerns

The event runs from 9.30am to 4pm, with lunch included, at the Mandolay Hotel in Guildford. Tickets are £15 for members and £25 for non-members. There are 60 places available and some have already been taken by employers who are funding their members of staff to attend.
