Along with its associate group company, RAM Consultancy, M&J presented talks on a number of subjects at the conference, including ‘Women Leaders’, ‘Drone Surveys’ and ‘Health and Well Being in the Workplace’, during the event held at the Radisson Blue, East Midlands Airport.

A company spokeswoman said: “These presentations created a good mixture of audience participation and response. This was followed up by a number of attendees requesting more information on the innovative Tool Box Talks and mentoring programmes run by both M&J and RAM.
