The 2018 IDEA UK User Group is being hosted at BDO London on Friday 5th October. This completely free event, hosted in collaboration with BDO LLP, is open to all users of the IDEA Data Analysis Software and offers an excellent opportunity for individuals to meet with fellow users from a variety of different organisations in order to share ideas, whilst also hearing a variety of presentations including technical advice on the use of IDEA from developers and support staff.
Independent of the developers and distributors of IDEA, the User Group’s objective is the promotion of a free exchange of ideas, information, and experiences between users.
