Forum finished, what now?

Friday, 18. September 2009

To me as an observer Thursday’s forum seemed to go very well. The speakers spoke with passion, with knowledge, with understanding. The workshops were well-attended, insightful and with Willem Foorthuis’s particularly invigorating. The technology did not let us down, after the airline did, and Torben Rune was able to give his presentation via Skype from Copenhagen. Marcel Bullinga chaired the forum with charisma, precision timing and a fine sense of humour.

One of Marcel’s aims was to get delegates networking and setting up coffee dates with each other. But it’s difficult to get everything said and heard in one day.

That’s where this website comes in.

Over the next day or two we will be uploading the video that was shot on Thursday. Each speaker has their own page. On it you’ll find the video of their presentation and their slides where available. Use the comments section on each page. The speaker will be emailed to let them know you’ve asked a question or left a comment. It is our hope that a few more “coffee dates” can take place online to continue the conversations that started at Dunston Hall.

You can access the presentations by clicking on the programme and then the speaker name.
