	MySQL Normalization & Optimisation Techniques by Ben Cornwell

	The talk aims to provide a description of the database normalisation
	process. Using a series of simple, practical examples I aim to introduce
	Normal Form 1 through 4, and provide a few reasons why normalisation is
	an important and useful process. Finally I'll present a couple of
	scenarios where blindly following normalisation techniques can have a
	detrimental effect.

	Be a better consultant by Alec Clews

	This talk will outline simple approaches to make dealing with customers
	more productive and profitable. Topics include:

	    * The value proposition;
	    * Process;
	    * Deliverables;
	    * Work practices;
	    * other core issues.

	At the end of the talk, attendees should be able to examine their work
	habits and identify areas for improvement.

Talk Proposals

We invite you to offer talk proposals for future meetings.  To be involved, send

particular programming language to illustrate examples, but should be accessible
to programmers from a range of backgrounds.
