RHUL Alumni Reunion Conference 2010

I don’t have many speaking engagements this year with a beautiful baby daughter to be distracted with 🙂 One I did have was last week at BCS Guildford in the U.K., that had to be cancelled unfortunately due to my flight being cancelled on preceding day. So my apologies to those that were planning to be there! My visit will be rescheduled for later this year.

However my next engagement in the U.K. will be at the beginning of July at the Royal Holloway Alumni Reunion Conference. I look forward to the networking with my esteemed RHUL colleagues. It will be a fun few days and I hope those of you that are visitors to Virtual Shadows blog are able to be there, there is a lot of catching up to do, and beers/wine to consume 😛

The programme for the event can be found here.
