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!
