Our summer conference 2018 was held at Canterbury Christ Church University.
Thank you to our delegates, speakers and hosts (and the weather) for making it an excellent two days.
Here, just in time for the start of the new academic year, are the speakers’ slides. Most sets of slides are from day 1.
Colleagues who presented on day 2 used high quality images, so some presentations are too big to upload to our site.
If you presented on day 2 and would like your slides added, please send a version under 2MB to firstname.lastname@example.org.
