Yet again, another engaging, inspiring and informative CPD event delivered by David Weatherly, with input from Sheena Wright too, yesterday.  Six and a half hours is a long time to sit at a screen and listen/watch, but David’s informal and chatty approach ensures that all are attentive and absorbed.

The remit that I was given from the GA prior to half-term was ‘To …
