We're doing things a bit differently this year as a direct response to
the feedback received from our past attendees!

Previously, the team at Velg Training created each NVC program with the intent of aligning topics into streams... however, we’ve come to realise that this can limit our scope.

Our ability to redefine our program, based on our delegates’ insight, is something we take very seriously. Which is why #2021NVC will feature 
Content Categories: A selection of essential topics that you have identified!  
All sessions for #2021NVC will sit under at least one Categories.
