Thank you for covering my talk, it is always nice to have feedback. One little point: I am a Professor (ie. Personal chair), not a lecturer, so not Dr but Prof. (see my webpage at reading.ac.uk).
And the audience photo was taken after the talk ended, so while I wholly understand your reporter's expression of their boredom, maybe the entertainment value of the photo led to a bit of exaggeration...
All the very best,
Val says the talk was very well received and talked about, so many thanks Catherine. The photo was actually taken before the talk, and it was more a silly expression to the photographer than a expression of boredom. We are always grateful for more knowledge of the area and your talk was in fact unmissable.
