Date: Day 2 - 4th March
This is an opportunity for members of the user group to table questions for a group of subject experts. I will be accompanied on the panel by a couple of respected specialists and will have an MC to present questions received from the audience. Attendees will be offered filing cards on arrival if they want to submit questions, and can email questions to me in advance of the event. "Concept", "generic", and "strategy" questions will be favoured over requests for solutions to specific problems if there are more questions than can be handled in the time available.
