It was an early start in London because I was taking part in the second day of the Learning Without Frontiers conference – see http://www.learningwithoutfrontiers.com/lwf-london-2011/ . This is organized by Graham Brown-Martin, who we had met during the analysis of the opportunity for an Innovation Platform in “education”, and who Digital Man has used as an assessor for his part of the LaunchPad.

This being the beginning of a new year, Monday was a holiday and personal commitments made it better for me to work at home on the Tuesday, so I missed the first “start the week” meeting of the year. Shame.

Against the run of play, I got to Swindon for the “start the week” meeting. It was a “normal” Swindon day, with lots of internal meetings, catchings-up and clearing of tasks from the “to-do” list.

The week started in an odd way because it had been re-arranged several times during last week to accommodate the magic BIS Manufacturing Event that seemed to have become “spastic in time”.

The drive to Swindon promised excitement, with all the dire threats of blizzards and a guest appearance by Dennis Quaid, but actually I got down in record time and got a parking space and a desk!

For change on a Monday morning, I set off for London and so missed the “start the week” meeting. Instead, I arrived at Chatham House just after 9 o’clock to register for a conference entitled “Investing in Science: Securing Future Prosperity”.

In my quest to make “start the week” meetings interesting, I am moving around the table. This week, I managed to sit next to FL so got to go first. What a rush!

It was Monday and therefore it was a “start the week” meeting, but since FL wasn’t there, Cyrus tried to break his own record for speed but ran into the rest of us getting in the way!

Another Monday, another “start the week” meeting. What is there left to say? The fun started immediately afterwards.

It was Monday, so it was a “start the week” meeting. Nothing remarkable about that. After a quick briefing from Jools so that I went to the right places during the week, it was a PRP with Will.
