Contrary to rumour, the Better Way Conference is STILL going ahead
Bath Council did scupper our venue, but we found another one - with more tickets now available
Last night, I was interviewed on GBNews about a pretty shocking story. As I may have mentioned (several times, and this won’t be the last), the Better Way Conference is taking place in Bath, UK on 20-22 May. We had a great venue lined up: the Assembly Rooms, a beautiful Georgian building in the town centre. All was booked and ready to go – then we received an email from the venue manager saying they were withdrawing their agreement of room hire. Put simply, Bath Council got cold feet about hosting a conference that allows scientific debate and open conversation, and cancelled our booking.
You can hear more about what happened on the interview clip that GBNews posted on YouTube.
Now, about that clip. I’m really grateful to GBNews for giving us the airtime to explain the situation and discuss the consequence of such a decision on free speech. The only problem is that the clip doesn’t include the very last bit of the interview where I confirm we’ve found another great venue – also in the town centre – and the conference is still going ahead.
Unfortunately, the clip has led people to believe the conference may not be happening. So please, tell everyone the good news: the Better Way Conference definitely going ahead and it’s going to be amazing.
This whole situation has made me more determined than ever to get these important conversations happening – and to ensure as many people as possible get to participate. In fact, now we have another venue confirmed, we’ve been able to add a few more in-person tickets. So if you’re able to make it to Bath, we would love to have you!
If that’s just not possible, you can still participate online. It’s just £49 for a virtual pass to all seven conversations – I may be biased but I do believe this could be the best £49 anyone spends this year in terms of physical, emotional and mental well-being. These videos will be available on-demand so you can also tune in at a time that suits you. Allow yourself to be excited about this meeting of independent experts, putting their heads together for the higher good of all. We have no conflicts of interest.
With all that in mind, I want to offer all subscribers to my Substack a 10% discount on virtual tickets to the conference. All you have to do is follow this link to book, and quote SUBSCRIBER10.
A virtual pass includes live chat so you can ask questions, comment, and connect with other participants. You also get instant replay access for the following two months and access to the attendee silent auction. I really hope you can make it – and please spread the word!
