The RNA Conference 2013 took place in the middle of July in Sheffield, at a conference centre called The Edge, situated in Sheffield University’s Endcliffe Village.
As always, it was a superb conference – very inspiring and I came away full of new ideas.
Once again, I’m putting up a gallery of photos and I’m going to take a back seat and let them do the talking. They’re focused on people at various moments during the conference, and hopefully they’ve captured at least some of the warmth and friendliness which made the conference the pleasure it was. It’s the members of the RNA who make the RNA events the fun that they always are.
I feel it’s appropriate to begin with a gathering of the chocliteers. We are swelling in number, as you can see.
Some of the chocliteers, 2013. Thank you, Lizzie Lamb, for letting me use your photo – it’s much better than the one taken with my camera.
