Chartership: completing the PKSB

This post is pretty long-delayed, but better late than never! This year I’ve decided to finally crack on with Chartership, following two (!) previously abandoned attempts.

CILIP 2015: learning points and reflections

Continuing my Epic Month of Conferences, on 2-3 July I headed to Liverpool for the CILIP conference. I was really excited for this one, largely because of the very high quality keynote speakers listed!

Thing 7: Face-to-face networking and professional organisations

This post is part of 23 Things for Professional Development. This week’s Thing is actually two linked Things, and I consider both particularly important to my own professional development. I’m a member of several different professional associations, and find all of them valuable in different ways. One of the main things they do is give […]
