    For some of it, yes ;-)

    I was mindful of the pipeline was all!

    Hated being permie, but have to admit, the conferences were great. I remember going to Dublin for annual European user group. Basically got hammered for 3 days, went to a few talks, which i didn't really take much notice of, and all paid for by the company. Happy days they were

    Present your clients work at the conference and you can be paid to attend as an IR35 contractor.

    When I'm sat on a beach somewhere or staying in a nice hotel in New York I don't sit there thinking "I wish I was at the Management Consultant Expo in Olympia or undertaking some internal accreditation training"
    I'm just up the road from Olympia, you should give me a shout next time
