How to make the most of the conference virtually


On this page you can find more information about our annual weekend, including a PDF version (available shortly) of the conference programme.

More information about each panel, including panellist profiles will be added in due course and will be available using the panel links below.


The Chatham House Rule

The SPG Annual Weekend operates under the Chatham House Rule by default. Where this rule may not apply, the chair of the respective panel session will make this clear. For those unfamiliar with the specifics of the Chatham House Rule, this means that “participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.” The Chatham House Rule always applies to the Q&A parts of any SPG event.

** Please note that the Chatham House Rule also applies to Twitter**
