I am thrilled to have been awarded my Master of Arts degree with distinction from London South Bank University My dissertation examined the link between perceptual talent and dyslexia. It proved to be a fascinating research area as I delved into the different thinking styles between people with dyslexia and people who are not dyslexic. I could not get to the graduation ceremony as I was attending a Davis workshop on Attention Mastery, a difficult decision but it was a fabulous workshop and they had packed a lot into each day. October was a full month for workshops as I also had an energising three days in Germany at the Davis International Symposium with colleagues from 22 different countries. It was wonderful to catch up with old friends and meet so many new facilitators too.
