11 “I’ve also had a number of international scholars and research students read my articles and listen to the music I have available in the repository. As a result, I am now pursuing collaborative research projects with music studios and researchers in Mexico and Norway” Monty Adkins, University of Huddersfield

31 This has to have been one of the best work-related courses I've attended. Not only do I feel that I have taken on board an enormous amount of information that is directly relevant to my job - and intellectually stimulating to boot - but I feel I have made contact with a supportive network of colleagues. All this, perfectly organised, and a faultless, fabulous environment, too. Outstanding. Thank you!

32 Thanks so much for the visit it was really useful and has lifted all the people involved. The steering group were most inspired and positive and your presentation has definitely moved us forward.
