DadCon 2018 | What’s on?

Below, you’ll fine our provisional schedule – we’re still in the process of finalising the precise agenda, but this will give you a good idea of what’s on.

This year’s theme is all about the good old MOT… but with a twist. Being a parent presents so many challenges and often we come out the other side only to be greeted by yet another challenge, which means zero time to sit back and reflect. But sometimes we do need to look at ourselves and the relationships we have with others and iron out a few creases.

So we thought, why not give you the ideas and tools to undertake the ultimate MOT of yourself and your relationships with your partner, work colleagues, friends and your children.
