We’re heading to the capital and largest city of Wales – Cardiff next month (Thursday 16 May) for the MA Leaders Club conference and we can now reveal a flavour of the agenda.

Cardiff is a Silver Sustainable Food Place 2021 award winner, becoming the first place in Wales (and one of just six places in the UK) to achieve the accolade while it was also voted the Best City in the UK and the Friendliest City in the UK for 2023/2024 by Condé Nast Traveller’s Readers’ Choice Awards.

The conference will be taking place at the Sophia Gardens Cricket Ground in the city, where we’ve lined up a whole host of stellar speakers.
