Diary of a COG Chair #2

It’s been a busy few weeks since my last report as Conference Organising Group (COG) Chair and I’m delighted that so many of you have been inspired to book your places.

The COG visited the venue for the first time as a group and had the opportunity to look at the bedrooms, meeting rooms and general facilities. Their response was very positive and added to the general excitement about this very special event.

Take up has been far greater so far than we’ve ever experienced and I would encourage you to book your place as soon as you’ve decided to come rather than leaving it too late!

We were really pleased when the Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy (AAGT) asked us if they could tag their AGM onto our conference. AAGT represent a truly international community of Gestaltists and its exciting that we’ll be welcoming their board and other members of their organisation into our community. If you’re a member of AAGT or think you might be interested in learning more about the organisation please take a look at the special page we’ve created on the website and consider staying on for the extra night to join in with their AGM. The event is being
heavily subsidised by AAGT to encourage member participation. You can book for the AAGT AGM via our dedicated booking page.

Finally I hope you’ve taken a few moments to view the fascinating interview with Lynne Jacobs – she openly talks about what she’s excited about regarding this conference and we hope it encourages those of you who may be wondering about whether to come or not to sign up.

Belinda Harris, Vice Chair of UKAGP, has carried out an interview with Peter Phillipson in which he talks about the importance of putting theory into practice and his hopes for us all to engage practically as well as theoretically at the conference. We plan to publish this in the next couple of weeks – so keep an eye out!

Once again if you have any queries and want to get in touch directly with the COG please email me at conference@ukagp.org.uk.
