Mathew'sTagsmanian Devil 2 Months, 5 Days, 11 Hours, 52 Minutes ago
What happened when 60 odd people had a go at the Participation mindmap? The Europecom session went well yesterday, judging by the Tweets. I’d never even been to an event run on World Café lines, so thank goodness the others knew what the...

Mathew'sTagsmanian Devil 3 Months, 5 Days, 2 Hours, 24 Minutes ago

Mathew'sTagsmanian Devil 3 Months, 6 Days, 1 Hour, 48 Minutes ago
