Key InformationWhy Inspired

We are pleased to announce that this year’s Inspired Pharma Training GMP Lead Auditor Alumni Event is taking place at The MacDonald Berystede Hotel and Spa, in Ascot, Berkshire, UK.  This follows on from last year’s successful event, held in Cambridge.  The event is aimed at former delegates of our GMP Lead Auditor training course, but is open to other delegates who may have received their auditor training elsewhere.  The programme for the day includes a number of auditing related topics, with a range of guest speakers.  The idea behind the event is to enhance your auditing knowledge and to form part of your Continual Professional Development (CPD).  In addition, you will be able to share your auditing experiences with fellow former delegates, as well as have some fun and engagement.  There is also an optional networking dinner, at the hotel, the night before included in the price.
