      Hi Sue,
      We do try and hold sessions in different places. A lot depends on being able to reach a cross departmental audience, availability of speakers and obviously a suitable venue. We are also considering whether some of the sessions would work digitally.
      It does often though come down to our resource so if you think you can make it happen we'd be happy to talk to you to see if we can make it work.
