It’s the calm before the storm, I don’t think the realisation of just how much I’ve got to get done before I head off to Florida on Thursday has really sunk in yet. I’ve been bumbling about the internet checking out what films Virgin Atlantic are currently showing and general musings that really could wait until another time, but I really can’t wait to head over to Tampa Bay in Florida for the Front End Design Conference this Friday.

I believe there are still a few tickets going spare so if you are in the area and fancy seeing Larissa Meek, Jina Bolton, Meagan Fisher, Lea Alcantara, Niki Brown, Adelle Charles and myself talk to you about various web related (or iPhone related in my case) topics then head on down, it’s going to be a brilliant day in a lovely location of the Hilton Hotel in Tampa Bay, and yes, it’s an all female speaker line up!


*insert sharp intake of breath here and await various comments about male/female segregation in the industry*

Yes that was a joke, been there, done that ;)

I’m the only one coming from across the pond so I feel really honoured to be a part of this conference. I am really looking forward to the sessions, each and every one of them sounds brilliant and captivating, I saw an opening slide preview of Meagan Fisher’s talk on her blog and it looked beautiful.

The only thing I’m worried about, and believe me it’s a stupid worry. Whenever I’ve flown to the States I’ve found a few hours after landing I’ve got really bad motion sickness, never to the point of actually being sick but I feel like I’m still on a plane and the ground seems to move side to side making me dizzy and sicky feeling. If anyone has come across this before and has found a remedy, please let me know before Thursday! It always goes away after a nights sleep but I’d prefer to actually make the speakers dinner the night before!

If you are coming to the Front End Design Conference, please be sure to come over and say “Hi” to this Brit!

Hope to see you there!
