Feedback by Loredana Roberts, Director of Global Learning and Communications at Gumley House School:

It was a brilliant conference, everyone is really buzzing about it this morning.

As you know this is our sixth conference. We have addressed an extraordinary range of topics with top level contributors since we launched in 2013 and all of us at Gumley remain very committed to continuing to bring these debate forums to our students.

The representation of diversity has particularly gained positive feedback from stunts, several already have come to speak to me about this issue and it also appears frequently from my top line scanning of the feedback forms.

As if often the case with a controversial subject, the energy and time that goes into these conferences is considerable and this year was no exception. We are hugely appreciative of all that you have done for us at TEAM Global.

I would like to thank The Economist which supplied copies of their magazine for the conference. Such great timing as it covered climate change in this issue.
