As announced last month, Sunrise Conference returned for a second year to provide community leadership training to those who want to start, run and manage local community groups.

This year’s speakers included James Murray, Nicola Jackson, Paul Thomas, Lucy Adams, Michael Burgess and Chris Worfolk.

If you missed the conference, don’t worry, we’ll be making all the talks available via Worfolk Lectures. You can follow Sunrise on Twitter to get the latest updates about when the videos will be available. You can also see the photos on Facebook.

A big thanks to all our speakers who gave up their time to share their knowledge and experience!
