Thanks for sending the visitors my way!

Thanks for all the support over the last year. The Whiteboard Blog has gone from strength to strength and visitor numbers have been steadily increasing. I’m hoping the next academic year is going to be just as successful. I’m quite excited about making my first overseas conference in March in Canada – hope to see some of you there. If you do want to book training from myself then the details are on this site. I’m more than happy to negotiate a training package for you.

Thanks again, and here’s to 09/10!
