Taking the S&DR to the World: 4th October 2019

Chair of the Friends of the Stockton & Darlington Railway, Trish Pemberton is travelling to the United States to develop relationships with American institutions and bodies in the run up to the 200th Anniversary of the opening of the Stockton & Darlington Railway. Over the next few weeks you can read her blog here and find out how we’re building international links.

John and I arrived in San Antonio, Texas to attend the Presentation Summit – it meets annually.  He and a friend set up and run the ‘Help desk’ – basically, anyone at the conference can come along with a problem and they, and several other Microsoft MVP’s (Most Valued Professionals), will help them sort it.  Microsoft sends 8 or 9 of their top PPT and graphics team to meet with their user community – it’s the only conference like this I think that they come to.
