After my lecture and that of Richard Allaway, there was a pause for refreshments and networking, and I chatted to a few other presenters.
It was then up to the room where my colleague Claire Kyndt was going to do her first solo lecture. We had done a joint presentation the previous year on our work in our geography department.
Claire had prepared a wonderful presentation, which can be downloaded from this link here.
There was a good turnout for her session, which wasn't in one of the main lecture theatres sadly, and also came at the end of a very long day, and it's a pity there weren't more people here to see and hear it. Fortunately, the GA President, and Senior Vice President were both there amongst other appreciative delegates, one of whom said that it was the best thing they'd seen all day.... and they were in my lecture too (actually they weren't...)
Hopefully this will be turned into an article for a GA journal.
A great way to end the first day's formal proceedings...
