    Document Excellence Day – 4th October 2017

    Event write up by Julie McCarthy, committee

    I have been attending this event now for around 5 years and have to say this has got to be one of the best ones yet!!  It was so well organised and ran exactly to the timings on the agenda.  We started the day with refreshments and our first opportunity to network with other attendees.  At 9.30 am the sessions started with Clare Waller leading the day.  She gave an excellent introduction to the day with some interesting facts and figures, particularly how many total years’ experience the UKDEG  team had been working in Law – too many to mention!

    Planning the Document Excellence Day

    Event write up by Clare Waller, committee member and event chair

    As each year goes by and the event grows, the Document Excellence Day takes just that little bit more effort to organise.  On the up side, every year we learn how to do things better and I hope that shows.

    Directly after the event there’s a period of mop up.  There are lots of thank you emails to speakers, sponsors and all those who have helped to make the day a success.  Feedback is read and collated and a report produced for the Committee Members.  Slides and information are uploaded to the website.

    And then – we start all over again!  Planning for next year’s event has already begun.  So, where do we start.  First the venue and then the date – that’s the easy bit.

    Event write up by Teresa Vincent, regular attendee

    This year’s Document Excellence Day was as great as ever.   I came away with some useful tips and lots of food for thought.  I imagine most of the attendees like me are trying to find meaningful ways of including a 3D Hubble space telescope in our future PowerPoint presentations!
