Making it through! It's been a tough year all round, starting with the death of David Bowie, then Prince, now the US election result. So it is very important to celebrate highlights, and 'notice the gold nuggets' in the year. These have included the Government Information Sharing network (GOVIS conference), which brings together the information specialists from across the sector and showcases innovation and talent. Ditto the Women's Summit, where women told their unvarnished stories and sought inspiration from each other in how to be successful.
