A sad announcement about the BASE Conference programme

We regret to inform you of a significant change to our upcoming BASE 2023 Conference, scheduled for 14 & 15 November 2023.

It is with deep sadness that we must announce the untimely passing of one of our originally scheduled keynote speakers, Jurgen Donaldson, who was a respected figure and a source of inspiration to many.  

This tragic loss has left us all in shock and we extend our heartfelt condolences to their family and loved ones during this difficult time. 

Jurgen had an unwavering passion for driving equity within workforce planning and it in this spirit that we are pleased to announce that Alex Perkins, Manager of the Workforce Community Engagement Team and a colleague of Jurgen’s, has agreed to step in as the replacement speaker for the event.  

Once again, our deepest sympathies go out to the family and friends of Jurgen Donaldson.

We hope that, by carrying on with the event, we can honour his memory and his contribution to our community.
