Terry Freedman, Senior Fellow, has also written some articles to help you around BETT15

“Enjoy”, says Terry, “If you have any comments about it, please let me have them via email or our contact form. If you go to Bett, please consider sharing your thoughts with other readers, by contacting me using the link above. You can write a few paragraphs, a few bullet points, or ask me for more detailed guidance. The main specific things I’d say is please include links when you refer to a product or service, and please don’t say anything that could land either of us in the libel court.” Terry Freedman’s Getting the Best out of Bett 2015.
