Mentoring and enjoying August!
We put a call out to ACEVO members for more mentors recently and I have been impressed with the strong and positive response. It’s a very practical way to help wade through the problems and difficulties CEOs face.
Twitter has been much in the news of late. I'm told I have an account but I don't use it. Always seemed a drag to me. And I prefer blogging. And indeed my staff prefer me blogging too as they suggested I might be too dangerous let loose on the twitter sphere. Sure they are right. I don't want to become like Kevin Curley do I!
A rather splendid weekend. My nephew Oliver getting his degree in Oxford. A trip to the Opera at Glyndebourne (the Marriage of Figaro) and a gorgeous night's stay in a lovely farm house (Hall Court Farm at Ripe near Charleston), and previously a rather fun BBQ at one of my other nephew's (Julian) flat in Borough.
Here is Oliver with his twin sister Miranda and my nephew Dr Alexander Bubb!
And here I am with my parents , brother Nick and sisters Sara and Lucy !
