Trevor came to Trafford BMA on 22 November 2016, where we had a group of 84 doctors across all specialisms and all stages of their career, but with the majority being hospital consultants in a variety of specialisms. The number of attendees was a record for a Trafford BMA event, and I’m sure this had a lot to do with the interest which Trevor’s planned talk had generated in advance. The publicity for the event was itself aided by Trevor, who kindly prepared a short outline of his talk, and I was able to utilise this information in a mailshot.
Thank you for taking part in the event last week… The feedback from delegates has been very positive and I overheard much talk
of chimps over the lunch buffet — I think everyone was blaming their ‘chimps’ for over indulging in the Bakewell slices, although that may have just been me! Thanks especially for sticking around to take part in the Question Time session, it was a very informative and a positive end to the day.
