A huge thank you!

Back from Umbrella 2011 and just want to say thank you to all the lovely people who stopped by the poster. Everyone was really enthusiastic and even helped in spreading the word by bringing people back to view the poster.

The very exciting news is that the poster won not one but TWO awards. It received the Judges prize for best poster and was runner up in the Delegates Choice. Thanks to everyone who voted for the support and well done to the hugely talented Katie Birkwood for designing the poster.

People were really keen on the programme and I hope that I managed to answer any questions people had. It was really encouraging to see so much interest.


  1. Well done, and there will probably be an influx of participants as well

  2. Thanks. Hopefully we will see a lot more people signing up soon. The main concern people had seemed to be that they wouldn't have enough time or that they were starting to late so I tried to emphasise how self paced the programe is. Hopefully many new people will be starting in the next couple of weeks!

  3. Yes, well done. Sorry I hardly saw you all day at the conferece - it's hard work presenting a poster and trying to see what else is going on, too!
