Support Northumbria Conference 2010

I attended the 3rd ‘Support Northumbria’ conference today. The idea behind it is great – give support staff a conference to raise their profile. I attended sessions on Business and Community Engagement, global ICT-based projects, but the highlight was the keynote from Spike Reid. He was President of the Students Union at Northumbria for two years, then went on a Land Rover-sponsored trip around the latitude of 50 degrees north. The blog about it from 2008 is here. It was great to follow his presentation in Google Earth as he talked about the highs and lows. 🙂
