What we do: Conferences and Events

The Capability Company has designed and delivered major conferences, working closely with steering groups of local organisations.

Reading Diversity Conference celebrated all aspects of diversity whilst promoting understanding of inclusion. It included participatory workshops, national speakers, art work, specially developed forum theatre and video installation. Participants said:

  • “It was a very thought-provoking way of presenting the ideas and of enabling us to explore some difficult issues.”
  • “I thought the event was fantastic. A great variety of learning opportunities for everyone.”
  • “Professional, friendly, safe, fun, challenging, informing. Everything’s been thought of, multimedia, colourful, modern… I could go on.”
  • “I thought you’d created a lovely atmosphere that felt very positive and truly diverse.”

The first National Parish and Community Planning Conference brought together those involved in community planning with those wanting to understand more. It included national speakers, participatory workshops and briefings, a parish planning market place and exhibitions. Participants said:

  • “The best conference I’ve ever been to”
  • “An enormous ‘thank you’ for such a great event – and your calmness and organisational abilities”
  • “Thank you for an outstanding day.”
  • “Thought it was an excellent day with a great exchange of ideas and experiences.”
  • “It was fantastic.”
