Thank you to everyone that took part today.
I've learnt one important lesson about how to manage these sessions. First to get everyone on to the instant messaging part of Skype first. And then ask who wants to join in on a voice conference call, that way everyone is at least in contact with everyone else first!
At one point I think we had two or three people in discussions on instant messaging and another three at one point on voice a little confusing but it all seemed to work.
I think we will definitely do this again soon.
