Macmillan Professionals Conference

An annual conference exclusively for Macmillan professionals to network, share and develop.

Each year, hundreds of Macmillan professionals get together from across the UK to explore and share ideas, network and inspire each other. Professional development and working together are the foundations of the conference which has grown in scope and size since 2007.

A highlight each year is the Macmillan Professionals Excellence Awards Ceremony, where winners of our prestigious awards are announced.

The 2018 conference took place from 7-9 November. Slides from the 2018 conference will be available for the next few months on our event website. For any queries, please contact

Further information about the 2019 conference will be coming soon. Please note, the conference is only open to Macmillan professional post-holders.

I enjoyed the networking opportunity and seeing the way Macmillan values its professionals.
