Monday started with the usual “start the week” although Fearless Leader was absent on a teleconference, so Cyrus tried to break his record for the shortest meeting ever. He failed.
05 September 2019
An unusual week, in that it started on a Tuesday, so even though I was in Swindon, I was not able to take part in a “start the week” meeting. Instead we had a meeting about the business engagement process. It feels like good progress is being made, but we are still a bit uncoordinated about what we do.

Although it started with a Monday, this week had no “start the week” for me. Instead I went to London for a meeting of the “Low Carbon Innovation Group”.
22 August 2019
Another “start the week” chaired by the relaxed and tanned Cyrus, so it was over in half the time. We then had a short discussion on the pre-Innovate dinner, who has been invited, how they have replied and what we are doing about it. From the overall tetchiness of subsequent conversations, I’m guessing we’re not on top of the situation?
15 August 2019
I am sure there was a “start the week” meeting, but I can no longer remember it!! Afterwards we had a discussion about the way we manage publicity within the competition process.
08 August 2019
Only a slightly depleted “start the week” meeting despite the holiday season. Then a short session telling Fearless Leader all the cock-up’s I had made the week before while he was studying sheep in Yorkshire.
01 August 2019
With the (alleged) onset of the summer interregnum, the “start the week” meeting was strangely empty, so we finished pretty quickly and got back to work. It was followed by an Innovate Steering Group, where Huw whipped us into decisions, while feeding the inner person with doughnuts.
25 July 2019
Yet another “start the week” meeting. It must be habit-forming. A bit more time to catch up on e-mails before the review meeting for Gordon Murray Design.
18 July 2019
2 weeks for the price of one – albeit only 6 working days!! I vaguely remember the “start the week” of July 6th, but only know that I was there because my calendar says I should have been.
04 July 2019
Monday, and I made it to the “start the week” meeting. Next came a discussion with the Competition team about how nest to handle the proposal from Gordon Murray Design and Zytek.
