About a week ago (13-15 November), I went to Madrid for a presentation at the Global Forum for Hereditary Angioedema. I had my talk on the opening Friday night. This is an excellent moment for a talk, because the audience is still fresh and remembers the information you’re trying to share. Furthermore, I had a joint presentation with Prof. Marco Cicardi, a highly respected researcher and clinician in this field. The presentation was interactive; I could ask ‘pop-quiz’-styled question that could be answered by the audience via tablets that were provided. Takes some getting used to, but great fun! From the answers to these questions, I was reminded of what the (mainly clinical) audience really needs. Back to the lab – we’ll figure this out.
In conclusion: It has been an inspiring event!
