Welcome to the Spring Edition of the SOFHT Focus.

In this packed edition we have some excellent articles for you to enjoy. My thanks to all the authors that kindly provided these, without you this publication would not be possible.

Once again also thanks to Rick Pendrous for his fantastic support and guidance, along with deputy editor Amanda Holland and Maplerock, who as ever have all done a fantastic job in pulling this together.

In addition to the tremendously popular Focus Live we launched during the lockdown, we have now also introduced the ‘Elevenses’. This is a club-style forum giving members the opportunity to come together and discuss topical matters.

Paul Davidson, one of the newer SOFHT Board Directors, has facilitated this with support from NSF International. These sessions are a great networking opportunity and we’ve had positive feedback so far. Please do let us know what you think.

Also, in this edition we have an interview with Su Werran. Most of you know Su and how she shies away from the limelight. So, this article gives you a little more
insight into our fantastic SOFHT Operations Director, who is sadly retiring from her role this year.

I hope you find this edition interesting and useful. As ever, please do let myself or the team know if you have any suggestions for improvement or indeed would like to provide an article for a forthcoming edition.

In the meantime, I wish you a very Happy Easter and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Dianne Waite,
Editor SOFHT Focus
