Announcing The Aspire Annual Conference 2020

Updated: Jan 23, 2020

Following on from last year's amazing conference at Bolton Arena we are hoping this year will be even bigger and we listened to last year's feedback and we are going to have more workshops, more speakers and more fun!

In 2020 we will be bringing our 3rd Annual Conference to The Edge Conference Centre, Wigan. On Thursday 6th February 2020 we will be hosting a great lineup of some of the most passionate people in the industry with Guest Speakers and Workshops. That day is also Time to Talk Day so we will be encouraging you to speak about mental health both on the day and in your own setting. In addition to this we will be donating any profit made from the conference to Rethink Mental Illness and Mind who are the lead charities behind the Time to Change Social Movement.

Confirmed speakers:

Time to Change - Details to be confirmed but we are very excited to be welcoming Time to Change to give our Keynote speech!
