Opening soon: The Macmillan Professionals Conference and Excellence Awards
The Macmillan Professionals Conference is a chance to take time away to focus on your own wellbeing and learning.
There will be opportunities to network with colleagues from across the UK, hear about Macmillan’s new strategy, and gain new skills and useful resources to help you in your role.
If you’ve never attended before or if you’re new to Macmillan, there will also be a pre-conference networking session for you to get to know others.
The glittering Professionals Excellence Awards Ceremony offers inspiring examples of best practice, complete with a surprise celebrity guest.
The event takes place from 7-9 November 2018 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, and registration details will be announced in a future edition of Mac Mail.
Further information is also available on the website.

Macmillan Free Wills Month
This August, Macmillan is running its second Free Wills Month which provides people with the opportunity to write their will for free.
To make use of this offer, simply sign up for a free will on our website during the month of August. Your will can be written in branch, at home, online, via post or via telephone.
There’s no obligation to leave Macmillan a gift, and every gift we do receive helps to fund Macmillan’s services for generations to come.
You can also help us to spread the word this August, by letting colleagues and the people you support know about our free will service.
