In Leeds today, I'm so glad I don't have to commute every day, I
normally love going on the train anywhere but standing all the way
to Leeds at 8:00am isn't my idea of fun - and the car is no better!
I'm getting used to the "brush off" with which I was so grateful my
secretary used to protect me - "he's in a meeting", "We can't
find the email" etc - It's not so much fun from the other
side I can assure you. It's also frustrating because I'm not trying
to sell anything but actually give money away and it's still
difficult to get to the decision makers!
However, had my first successful school management meeting today
which I think will bear fruit with a number of schools. Count
that as a success!
