On this page you find an overview of upcoming BSTP meetings. 

There are so many great ways to learn and increase your CPD portfolio these days: You can read books, listen to podcasts, watch how-to videos, attend webinars, take part in 'in-house' training, just to name a few. Why bother with the time and expense of attending BSTP events?

Here are 7 reasons why you should attend events organised by the BSTP

  • Meet the speakers face to face and benefit from their experience
  • Networking opportunities with your peers
  • Learning in a new space to increase your knowledge on the subject matter
  • Break out of your comfort zone to learn something new
  • Invest in yourself to improve your employment opportunities
  • Increased knowledge will help when sitting examinations
  • The topics covered in some of these events are unlikely to be repeated
