Michael,

 

I liked your "member of the week" article.  You mention technical assistance and I wondered whether you would be interested in talking to members of my trade association, British Expertise (www.britishexpertise.org) in London sometime.  We cover all the development sectors that you mention, and I think they would be interested to hear about your work.

 

Regards

Nigel Peters
