4. Your questions answered

We asked around and had a great response from our clients and other Moodlers on what would they like to ask Martin. Armed with our list of questions we quizzed Martin about some interesting topics. This question and answer session is featured in our up and coming Podcast, or stay tuned on our blog page for the results!

5. Getting to know Martin.

Away from the usual questions we wanted to ask Martin, we took a more light-hearted approach to end our chat. Want to know what Martin dislikes more than anything? Or why Martin loves making boomerangs? You'll find out here first!

6. Moodle HQ / HowToMoodle management meeting.

HowToMoodle Directors and Managers updated Martin and his Business Development team on our future growth plans.

7. Pizza!

We finished off the visit with Martin with an abundance of pizza, giving us chance to chat to some of the team at Moodle HQ in a more informal setting.

Thanks to Martin and his team for a great, inspiring day!
