Deurne, The Netherlands, 8 - 10 June 2005

At the start of the EPN 7 conference we briefly touched on the hopes and expectations of what this time would bring:

  • Networking
  • Benchmarking
  • Learning
  • Discussing
  • Collaboration
  • Sharing
  • Co-ordination
  • Partnerships
  • Quality
  • Improvement Process
  • Planning
  • Action

From the feedback received each of these points have been achieved to a certain degree, though there is always room to improve. The last point, “ACTION”, now lies with you.



I thought the facilitation and the team building was terrific.

Does EPN make a difference? In Tearfund the answer is 'Yes'. Following the lessons learned from a keynote speaker and in discussion with other agencies we have implemented an Internship Scheme to enhance the recruitment of new leaders.

Very useful to meet such a wide range of people from different but relevant organisations. Particularly willing to share difficulties as well as successes.

This is a great forum to share ideas with other HR professionals in the Humanitarian/ development world.
