Well, the first day of presentations at SBL International Meeting here in Auckland, as yesterday there was the powhiri and reception to welcome attendees.
So far the highlights for me have been the opportunities to meet new people, to catch up with old friends and acquaintances, and to get a feel for the different ways in which people present their material. My presentation is later in the week so getting a sense of what works and what doesn’t with the audience here is nice to have. Plus, picked up some cheap books which is always a bonus.
Still tired from an excellent birthday party for Kim over the weekend out at Whatipu with friends and family staying at the Whatipu Lodge for the weekend, so nice just to sit in some presentations and catch up with people.
