Testimonials

What some of our delegates think about our events….

“I have to say this was by far the best Rant Conference of them all! I thoroughly enjoyed myself and was sorry that I was only there for half a day and missed the evening entertainment as well (which I heard was very good too)”

~

“It was a pleasure and an honour to participate at Rant. Please pass my thanks to all the team for making such a success of the day and evening”

~

“The whole day, including the workshop, was good. The subject matter was well presented by the various speakers, with plenty of humour and enough of a twist to provoke thought, even if the areas of concern were already reasonably well known. I especially like the way that subjects were related to business requirements. The other participants all seemed to be there to discuss and share and gain  experience and it was refreshing that it didn’t feel like anybody was showing off.”

“Thank you very much for asking me to be on a panel.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and from the interaction with the delegates, I think they did too. The workshop elicited some good debate and conversation – all panellists interacting, giving great advice and tips.  The mix from various industries and specialisms of both the panellists and delegates complimented the session too.   I think there is mileage for an extended workshop on this subject…”

“Overall this was simply the best event I have attended, possibly ever!”

“Thank you for all the hard work and organisation that goes into organising these things.  As gobby as I am on the night, I value RANT for its unique approach and diversity of church.  Tough thing to balance with the commercial needs too.”

~

“Very much enjoy the events, format of the talks is very stimulating, good comments and debate, compared to most other events RANT is better for genuine points rather than people disguising statements as questions. Met knowledgeable and interesting people, ran into an old friend and got an invite to another conference, I like the informal nature. Kind of thing where you meet people of the right level. Not over techy which is good, as I am more of a strategist and security person.”

“Thanks for yesterday evening, it was a very special and informal way of information security professional networking, I had never seen any like that. Really liked it.”

~

“Just a short email to say thank you to you and your colleagues for organising such a great RANT Reloaded conference yesterday. There was a great mixture of speakers talking about many of the current hot topics prevalent in the profession. Furthermore, the audience interaction throughout and the networking opportunities outside the conference room made this an entertaining and rewarding day away from the office. Such workshops don’t run well without much careful preparation and planning. So thank you once again.”

~

“Huge thanks to the RANT team for this event – well up to your usual very high standard. Nice opportunity to get to know a few of the faces from the conference – in congenial and comfortable surroundings. See you all soon!”

~

“I really enjoyed the RANT event, both the conference as a whole and my participation in the Soapbox session. I definitely met some interesting people and came away with a few useful freebies too. I thought the whole day was exceptionally well organised and run. The venue was suitable and in a convenient location and the catering was absolutely top notch. In general, the quality of speakers was good and it felt as if the RANT format allowed them to express their true views of whatever issue they were addressing. The lively audience participation was a welcome deviation from other conferences and it seems the RANT community is more vocal and thought-provoking than similar IT audiences.”

“Brilliant!  I thoroughly enjoyed the whole event.  It was informative, entertaining, thought-provoking and well managed throughout the day.  I don’t think I’ve ever been to another event that came even close to emulating this for being so well-rounded.  I’m already waiting for next years event.”

~

“I attend many conferences, seminars and events (US, Middle East, Europe) and I can hand-on-heart say this is up there with the very best.   Which is a truly incredible achievement for your first grown-up RANT.  The thought, consideration and outstanding preparation to create an ‘experience’ and client centricity, was evidently and painstaking very well planned in advance – down to the very smallest details. You should be very very proud of your achievement with your inaugural RANT milestone.  Very well done!”

“Thank you for organising a great conference, and it was great to attend an event that doesn’t discuss the technologies and focuses on the real issues.”

~

“It was very well planned conference and one of the best infosec days I’ve been to in a while.

~

“Thanks for organizing an excellent and thoroughly worthwhile conference; I’m already looking forward to the next one!”

~

“Thanks for putting on such an interesting event. Highlights for me were Steven Bonner’s talk and, of course, the University Challenge session”

~

“I really appreciated this opportunity and got to chat to a few colleagues I already knew and a few I did not. The event was very well organised and at a good pace. All the discussions were relevant areas of infosec that we are collectively all concerned about (and for which there are not full answers for as yet). The videos that were shown on screen (and that I was lucky enough to get a DVD copy of), were funny and a very good addition. Thank you also for the refreshments, they were just great.”

~

“I just wanted to say thank you for an excellent event this week, I would certainly be interested in future RANT forums and conferences – I can think of a number of things to have a good rant about myself as well”

~

“Many thanks for an excellent and well organised conference  – it proves Infosec can be fun and not just a series of turgid power-point presentations. Having said that both the Big Shift and Cyber war presentations were entertaining and thought provoking”

~

“Many congratulations on a very successful and highly enjoyable RANT Conference. From an attendees perspective I have nothing but praise and commendation for a job very well done”
