We will be organising a walk around the lakes at the venue where there will be ample opportunity to take photos and to discuss with others the techniques and composition for good pictures.

It’s an opportunity to get some fresh air and to clear the head in a creative way following the previous night’s gala dinner.

Trained in photography and audio-visual production, David Henson set up The Regent Slide Company in 1986 and spent years producing thousands of 35mm slides for many and varied businesses. But it was spending time sitting in audiences listening to professional speakers that brought home the realisation that even good speakers produce bad slides. And now he’s on a crusade to eradicate excruciatingly boring visual communications and to teach people how to produce slides and presentations that wow their audiences and that make their talks memorable and effective.
