tsiMORAY’s Annual Conference

About this Event

Join the Dots 2021: Shifting Perspectives

  • Keynote speech by inspiring speaker and author Cormac Russell.
  • Virtual market-place and networking.
  • An event for the community of Moray, Scotland, UK.

Join us online for tsiMORAY’s annual conference serving community organisations, community practitioners and members of the public based or working in Moray, Scotland.

We have created a focused agenda to inspire a shift in perspectives as we continue to move through and beyond our current challenges. Keynote speaker Cormac Russell will offer his perspective on how we can focus on what's strong in people; viewing all in terms of the assets that they are to the community – rather than defining people only in terms of need – and place them firmly in the driving seat of service delivery.

Of course you will also have the opportunity to personally join the dots through our online networking facility and an easy-to-navigate virtual Marketplace (Expo Booth*) showcasing support available along with the incredible work that continues to be delivered in Moray.

*Expo Booth is an area in the events platform Hopin which enables you to showcase your services. You can find out more about the virtual booths here.

Places are limited. Early registration is recommended to avoid disappointment.
