Balens are delighted to announce we are holding our

5th annual CPD Conference

on Monday 22rd May 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham.

Bookings open soon!

As previously our CPD event will be supported by Balens and our Insurance partners, ensuring exceptional value for you, our clients.

We have some truly inspirational speakers this year, including our key note speaker Jo Marchant, the highly acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of the investigative book Cure. Jo is an award winning writer who originally trained as a Scientist with a PhD in genetics and medical microbiology.  Her writing explores a number of approaches to examine whether the mind can heal the body.  Jo researches in depth, uncovering evidence that leads to conclude thoughts, emotions and beliefs can have a very real effect on our health.  Cure has was awarded Best Book of the year/2016 by a number of respected journals, including the New York Post, Sunday Times and Economist.

We have recently received the news that our Key note Speaker Jo Marchant will unfortunately not be able to attend our CPD event in person due to extenuating circumstances, and sends her sincerest apologies. However we will still be showing a video of her pre-recorded presentation and there will also be the opportunity for an telephone Q&A session following the presentation.

This year we also have one of the world's leading natural health authorities Jayney Goddard from the CMA speaking on business skills, plus Robert Vekerk (Alliance of Natural Health International), Nicola Brough (Warwick University) and Paul Grant (BSG Solicitors).

The event is highly praised each year and looks set to be better than ever for 2017. We are just finalising the program details, and will send further information regarding bookings.

Full details will be posted here as soon as they have been confirmed.
