Hi Lee Ann, thank you so much for your kind feedback, it truly means a lot.
The forums have been around for a dozen year's or so and have been a lifeline for many people over the years, but it’s the regular members who turn up every day and share their knowledge who deserve the credit; without them there would be no forums. Unfortunately these day's I'm consigned to doing the behind the scenes stuff. I don’t have the time to be involved as much as I’d like to on the forums and so it’s very reassuring to know we have such great members here supporting each other…let’s give thanks to them.
At the start of 2015 we embarked on the webinars as an extension to the forums. We wanted the same learning and knowledge sharing opportunities, but in a way that is not possible on the forums (audio/visual). I didn’t know if we would get any speakers, have enough ideas for topics or whether anyone would attend. As it turns out they have been an amazing success with 45 webinars completed and with over 50,000 people having watched them. When we start a webinar each week I love to see the hellos being typed into the chat box from people from all over the world. I also get many email messages of thanks and support often saying they cannot afford training or that it’s not available in their region. It feels great to be involved with something that is helping strengthen food supply around the world. Long may it continue!
Thanks once again for the feedback.
