ALL June Event 2010
We'll use this age to record our thanks, pictures and resources related to
this event - Thanks, a photo album, vox pops, related
documents, and accounts. We'll work on most of it over the next 2 weeks,
but first and foremost, some public thanks ....
Firstly, thanks to so many people who made the ALL London June Event so
||Our wonderful, inspiring and entertaining plenary speakers,
who managed to keep all 90 of us fully engaged during their lively talks
...Rachel Hawkes and Michael Wardle .. Rachel Hawkes gave us eleven
great ideas (-yes, she gave us a 'bonus' one!) for 'what motivates them'
and Michael Wardle outlined a logical sequence of learning supported by
some great games and much laughter. Both absolutely fantastic and we hope
they'll come back in the future!
||Those who volunteered to lead helpful 'language specific'
sessions in the afternoon .. Sharon Mangion (Italian), Rachel Hawkes
(Spanish) - members of the French National committee (Cynthia Martin,
Daniele Reed, Nathan Jenkins) and members of the German national committee
(Geoff Brammall, Angela and Carol Hughes). It was especially nice to
have both our current and elected presidents with us (Cynthia Martin and
||The Links into Languages team who organised the venue ..
furniture, liaison with catering, a smiling and helpful IT
technician, a welcome from the nice men on the reception desk .. and who
provided the coffee and lovely pastries.
||The sponsors, Sanako (Stephen Blackie here) and
Vocabexpress (Justin Sycamore) whose contributions paid for most of the lunch
and The European Commission, Spanish Consulate and French Institute
who brought along some great posters and ideas.
||The ALL London Committee who support throughout the
year and do lots of 'behind the scenes' work to help it all go
smoothly - Kathleen (maintainer of THE spreadsheet!), Monna
(Treasurer) and Tanja (German committee) on the reception - Jen was
particularly explicit on notices to toilets (frankly the most important
signs in any institution!) - we liked Danièle's new sign templates - Cat
there nice and early to do anything which came her way including liaising
with caterers - Nathan ensuring everyone had a welcome - Richard, our new 'young blood' conducting 'vox pop'
interviews - Prim distributing badges and infectious good humour - Nick
being generally helpful and pulling us together on communications with
people on high - Cristina organising certificates and a card to say thank
you to José .. and everyone for doing whatever Helen asks them to!
||..AND ESPECIALLY, all of you who turn up so faithfully and
bring along your friends, ensuring that the event is buzzing, positive and
loud! Thanks for all the thanks and encouragement you gave us on the day
and we look forward to seeing you all again.
