This week, the week didn’t start with a “start the week” meeting. Instead we had a “planning the tables for the Innovate dinner” meeting first, and then a “start the week” meeting. Should we be more careful with our nomenclature?

I was in Swindon on Monday morning and there was no “start the week” – how did I cope? Instead we had an Innovate update and a Gravel Pit morning. It was then a series of “catch-up” meetings – so much is going on we are in danger of tripping over one another without them!
26 September 2019
I am sure there was a “start the week” meeting, but it now feels so long ago that I cannot remember the details!!
19 September 2019
Another week had to be started, so we did so. I then got 90 minutes to discuss the relative prioritisation of my objectives with Fearless Leader and we re-wrote the ones from the objectives cascade, so I guess I’ll have to propagate that through the system!!
12 September 2019
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.
29 August 2019
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.
