Heidi, our Founder, is based in Edinburgh and last week she took herself off to the WeDO 2018 conference at Dynamic Earth. Word from Heidi is that Dynamic Earth it’s the best conference centre she’s ever been to, and the only one that overlooks an extinct volcano – Arthur’s Seat.
The conference provided an opportunity to listen to inspiring talks from Al Kellock (Former Scotland Rugby Captain) and Mollie Hughes, the youngest woman in the world to scale Everest from both sides.
The prize for best talk went to Gary Burns who invented the Cargo Seat – a child booster seat that converts to a roller travel suitcase.
Heidi was hoping to walk up Arthur’s Seat afterwards but was persuaded (?!) to drink Pickering’s Gin with Marcus Pickering. He won the MEERKAT award for best story told all day…
