After talking with Paul and Al I have decided to attend Explore 2009 run by Royal Geographical Society on Friday night a lecture by George McGavin 'To the Ends of the Earth: exploration and biological discovery" with films clips from his three BBC expeditions. 

Over saturday I will have the chance to learn more about Mountaineering and trekking expeditions. I will get the chance to talk one - one with one of the many experts who will be there on the day. i will also learn about Project planning and organisation, Marketing and PR, How to raise the funds, Health & safety in the field, Communication and navigation, Inclusive expeditions.

Over sunday I will learn more about, Designing a research project, Working with the host country, Survey and mapping, Communicating my discoveries, the Environmental impact, Society Expedition & Research grants. then in the afternoon I have choosen to discover more on Human Sciences and Writing for Newspapers and magazines.

Really looking forward to this weekend. So thank you to Paul for telling me all about it.
