So, what’s on this year ... places I shall be and stuff I shall be doing. dIARDiary DDiary Dates

 

Marc had a very busy 2012, particularily with his first Tour of Australia which took place in August and September - that Tour alone counted for 35 gigs, or 74 hours of seminars over three States and one Territory, making contact with over 800 people ... AND a further 18 hours in eight meetings in universities and government departments on top of that.

But where is he speaking in 2013, I hear you say? [you did say that, I heard you]

Planning for 2013 is ongoing at this very moment and so some of the events in the diary below are advance notices with more details to come. However, Marc's speaking engagements for the coming year include venues across the UK (including a Tour of Scotland), more residential and conference events in Ireland, and Tours of Australia, New Zealand, and the USA. One thing is for sure - it's going to be a busy year!

To discuss any of these events please contact marc by email marc@marc-armitage.eu
