Only 11 days left!

Have you booked your place yet? Better hurry as there are only a limited number of places left!

We are getting emails daily from many countries, congratulating us on the line up of speakers and wishing to be kept informed of future events! The networking and relationship building has begun already with three of our experienced managers being interviewed by one of our speakers, Michael Porter, on how libraries can differ in other countries, even though they speak the same language and share much of the same cultures. This will soon be broadcast online on Michael’s  Libraryman blog.

It’s all very exciting stuff!!!!!!

So book your place NOW and I can welcome you personally to EDGE2010.
