Welcome to this Ceremony Matters conference for funeral professionals. This year we are focused on Diversity and Inclusion and have some wonderful guest speakers: Debi Lewinson-Roberts, Sheron Burt, Andrew Maginley, Hannah Jackson-McCamley and Cath Brew.

The webinars will be broadcast live and you will receive an email requiring you to register to give you access to the webinars on the day. We commence at 1.30pm on Saturday 16 January 2021, with a second session at 5pm, and then 2 sessions at the same times on Sunday 17 January. There will be networking after all sessions to meet and chat about the sessions, or whatever you like.

If you are not yet registered you can still join us. All webinars are recorded for catch-up.

We hope that you enjoy the conference.
