“Drupal for NGOs” is the bi-monthly bash held at Amnesty International in London and as the title suggests, it’s all about encouraging NGOs to harness Drupal powa!

There were 3 presentations interspersed with plenty of friendly banter, wine and nibbles. The focus? Creating powerful intranets with Drupal.

Caffe Nero

The half hour or so James and I spent in Caffe Nero across from the MEN offices was vital... we supped mocha, made last minute adjustments to the slides and spent a few nervous moments in the toilet - not together I hasten to add!

The idea to get the talk done in the first slot proved to be a good game plan, it meant we could relax and enjoy the rest of the day! Were we nervous? You bet, did it show? You bet, did we enjoy it? You bet we did!
