Anecdotes “ The concept of online conferences is a winner, instead of spending hours on a train to sit through various Powerpoint presentations, you access the conference when it’s convenient to you.“ Richard Menhinick, Hart District Council  “ If you find yourself drifting apart from your peers and you have to rely on regional meetings that take place several months apart, then the online community can bring and keep you together – its also great way of staying in touch with industry changes.” Scott Hill-Anderson, West Lothian Council
