I was the Chair of the Local Organising Committee and a member of the Scientific Committee for this major international conference. The congress attracted 720 delegates from 28 countries over four days, generating £1.5 million for the local economy. During the congress delegates heard over 300 presentations on the latest research findings and practice developments relating to the protection of children from abuse and neglect. In recognition of my work in organising this conference, I was joint recipient of the Belfast Ambassador of the Year award from the Belfast Visitor and Convention Bureau.
