It was good to meet you all last week, and whilst the workshop is still fresh in our minds I thought I'd keep the ball rolling by gathering some information for the website! It was decided that it would be a useful tool to have everyone's info, interests and contact details in one place to facilitate networking and/or sharing of experiences, so can I please ask you to send me:

1) 100 word bio
2) a photo (ideally one where people can see your face!)
3) any suggestions you have for content on the website (optional)

And if I could have these by the 6th Dec that'd be great :)



p.s. if you know of anyone not on this list can you please forward the email to them - thanks!
