    I know I have asked before but would you be willing to present at the Library conference in June 28/29 2016 in Bloemfontein? We are looking for someone local and out there with IT and learning based in a school and you are perfect for the job!
    Please say yes! Would your school be interested in sending you to share your expertise? If not we could cover your costs if needed.
