IPS Training Weekend very successful! 

The popular annual IPS Training Weekend was again held at The National Film and Television School.

"It was my first time in one of these events and I was really impress with the quality of the speakers, the attendees and the access to the manufactures. I know it shouldn't surprise me as IPS is renowned but it's more to give a big thank you for the people who organised it! I am looking forward to next year event!"

"A brilliant weekend. Learned a lot and will be looking forward to put it to practice."

"Delivering this kind of foundation is, for me, absolutely unique to IPS. No amount of scrabbling around online trying to grasp bits and pieces can compare to that which I have learnt in two days at the conference, this kind of information and access to experts simply isn't available anywhere else and for those of us trying to get that springboard to help us develop it's totally invaluable and completely essential."
