    BETT 2009 Badges

    Here you go. A sample of the small sticker\badge we will be giving out to all members who visit the stand at BETT 2009. We would like you to place it on your visitor pass please, in one corner (it will be relatively small). Our aim is to not only allow you all to spot each other at a distance, but to raise awareness of us as you walk around and get scanned every 12 feet!
    I will also make it a point that there is no free pizza without one, so pop in and see us first when you come down, and we'll tell you where the best freebies are, before we send you to laugh at the state of Gav on the Smoothwall stand. The background colour to these badges will be gold BTW.

    Got a couple of suggestions....
    1. Put a space on the sticker for eg username so people can more easily associate meatspace names to usernames. Write it in with a CD pen or some such when you give it out.

    2. If you're gonna laugh at Gav, it would seem counterproductive not to laugh at Sue as well Se if we can get her sounding like Barry White's sister again

    Great idea (I seem to remember suggesting EduGeek hats a couple of years ago...). I second Tom's point about somewhere to write your username.

    Did someone say free Pizza.... mmmmmmm...

    I'll be looking forward to it! I just hope RM will let me go, seeing as "All my base is belong to RM" then!

    But HR assures me I will be allowed... All good!

    Can you have more than one badge if you've got split personalities? (Twice the amount of pizza too?)

    Or look after more than one establishment?
    Being sent two separate BETT badges - actually quite useful as I can change badge depending who I am talking to (sometimes people are very condescending to those who come from a first school)

    Excellent idea! An idea like this had been going through my mind... it would be nice to be able to identify some fellow eduGeeks! I like the idea of being able to put your user name on too.

    Oh good not just me that finds that then when you go to a primary stand and the next stand is secondary and you want to talk to them as well! My last place was 3-18 so I had to do the full range of stuff, but did find it annoying that some firms were a bit iffy.

    Times like that the best thing is to say you consult for various schools of differing ages and abilities.
