And that’s a wrap!

We kicked off our final day of events with the  Live Come Visit my Oral and Poster session that has been such a success throughout this conference, giving viewers a taste of the breadth of content and research available to view, and focus for their day ahead.

We then reconvened as a panel with Zubin Austin, Mary Collins, Mairéad Nic Giolla Mhichíl, Alison Strath , Colin Adair and Karen Whitfield to reflect on some of the learnings from the conference  – the power of the network, the importance of failing (and permission to fail), the intergenerational differences, and the backdrop of policy that needs to be leveraged. A visual overview guided us back through the conference highlights, including our murder mystery event and the Hidden Howth Experience. Snippets to showcase our culture through dance, sport and humour were interspersed throughout today’s proceedings.

Congratulations to Trudi Aspen for winning the poster prize, and to Matthew Shaw for his exceptional conference engagement and as a result, winning the Gamification prize. 

Thank you to our Host, Education and International Committees, without whom this conference would not have been possible.

Thank you to all the participants and delegates of the conference, who embraced the virtual environment and utilised every opportunity to share, engage and interact. You managed to hang onto the trademark atmosphere of LLLP across multiple time zones through your enthusiasm and passion for life long learning.

Remember that all content will be available on the conference platform for another three months, giving plenty of opportunity to catch up on the offerings that you missed out on.

Finally, we are delighted and excited to hand over the LLLP mantle to the 2023 hosts, revealed at the closing ceremony – Denver, Colerado! A mile above sea-level with a vibrant city to explore, this face-to-face event is in the diaries already (2-5 July 2023). Keep an eye on their website for full information.

Had this been in Dublin, we would now be saying “Slán abhaile” (“Safe home” )- instead all that is left for me to say as LLLP 2021 Host Convenor is “Go raibh mile maith agaibh” (“Thanks a million to you all”) and to leave the parting words of Theodore Roosevelt as read at the LLLP2021 Closing Ceremony.


Best wishes,


Catriona Bradley,

Host Committee Convenor

Executive Director, Irish Institute of Pharmacy
