Development Day 3 November 20th

Dear colleagues,

Here is the sign up form for the next Development Day on November 20th. All you have to do is type in name, department, and choose your workshops. Easy. Please make sure you do this a.s.a.p. as I will cap numbers, especially for those presenting for the first time.

Therefore, it is especially important that you choose two reserves workshops.

You will see that there is a great selection on offer so it should be a really good day.
