Just a quick reminder about our 'Member's presentation plus drinks' tomorrow evening.
The plan is to meet at The Old Crown from 06:30 and then from 07:00 onwards we will have a series of brief presentations from our members - by brief we mean lasting six mins or less.
The venue has a digital projector, screen, as well as loudspeakers and I'll be bringing my Windows laptop loaded with PowerPoint. If you are a Mac user then you will have to bring you own machine AS WELL AS DISPLAYPORT/MINIDISPLAYPORT TO VGA ADAPTOR.
To give you a flavour of the content of the presentations; this is Ilana's abstract -
'By the end of this year, there will be more mobile phone subscriptions in Sub-Africa than people with access to safe water. With this juxtaposition, what are the opportunities to use mobiles to improve water and sanitation services? I'll highlight key ICT deployments in this sector (and their problems!) including my own research on the application of mobile money to water services, and the latest innovations and ideas.'
After the sessions there will be the usual networking opportunities (ie beer).
Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow evening. Oh, for those that have not been to the Old Crown before, be aware that there is another pub in the same area with 'Crown' in the name. We will be in the function room on the top floor.
