Sorry for not blogging for a while, I have been busy preparing for a seminar which finally took place yesterday at the DTI's conference centre on the edge of Parliament square - all went well except that Mr Blair failed to notfy me in advance that he and the Queen would hold the state opening of Parliament on this day and that all road leading to and from Westminster would be closed. We heard this on the van's radio at 2 minutes to eight whilst negotiating Hydpe Park Corner! As we neared horse guards parade the boys in blue (or yellow actually) were ready with their barries and then walked in the road to stop traffic, fortunately we just sueezed through and made it to the DTI on time. However some were not so lucky and with 40 presentations, in 3 streams to get through it was important to kick off on time. Unfortunately my first project team were all stuck on a bus in Kensington so that buggered up our timing, by the time we kicked off I was on my sixth cuo of coffee - Thanks Tony!
