You were excellent. The students were engaged and asking questions, which is always a good sign. The fact we went on longer and they wanted to know more was great.
Steve Hill- Senior Lecturer, Electronic Publishing 

Firstly I would like to thank you very much for coming in to speak to the MA students at Solent yesterday. I have had some great feedback already, they found your talk really useful and interesting. We would love you to come back again next year as well if you were available and would like to. :)
