Hi, I'm back from this year's "I Am" themed Convention in Mainz, Germany which was just amazing, new presenters both from the Home Office, host nation and France and UK as well as our very dear CEO Shelli Gardner, pictured above.
Attendance broke all records this year, in excess of 800 and in some ways, it was not possible to maintain the intimacy of a table setting that we have enjoyed in previous years.
Row upon row of chairs had been set up, the Convention Hall was so big, most of my camera shots couldn't capture the demonstrations on the main stage in focus (despite having massive screens) and using a telephoto lens!
The lovely Lynne Fahey kindly took this photo of all Amanda's Inkees after one of our break-out classes, such a proud moment for us all as 3 of the team had been invited to present at this year's Convention - the lovely Elizabeth, (2nd in on left from back row), Rhoda - lst on left in back row and Caroline (in the blue cardigan on the right in the back row) all did a superb job!
Due to copyright, I am not able to share the projects and techniques we learnt whilst at Convention right now but watch this space, they will eventually appear when this temporary ban is lifted!
