A cracking way to spend a Saturday morning. The lovely people at Creative Mornings, Cardiff put on another cracking speaker, and the Saturday Morning format was great for me, meaning I could hang around a little after. Gavin Strange’s talk was a whirlwind journey through his work and some of the stories behind it. The joy he has creating such a varied range of cracking work really came across. I scribbled out just a few of the things that had particular resonance for me - not sure that anyone else would find them any use, but Gavin said to share, so I am.
My first time of attending the Support Staff Conference in the University of South Wales, saw me listen to a talk by Ben Calvert, The Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning, Teaching and Student Experience. It was a lot more interesting than his rather dry title would lead you to expect.
