The DHAA Victoria Christmas in July event was held on the 28 July, 2018 and it went off in true festive style.
An array of fantastic speakers guest speakers filled attendees with new knowledge they can integrate into their daily work routine as well as into everyday life.
The event also had a fantastic social side with some amazing wine tastings at the end. All-in-all it was a truly successful event with some great feedback from delegates: “Dr Lyndall Smythe was fantastic – loved the alternative nature of the presentation!” and “I believe Lyn Carman’s presentation will help me negotiate difficult interactions day-to-day.”
We are grateful to our sponsors, Colgate, Oral B, EMS, and GSK, for making this event possible with their much-valued support.
