The Week: Another great Highflyingdivas Forum hosted by The Home Office on Tuesday, where I gave the Insight Presentation on Taming Your Gremlin. One of the comments was ” the format creates such a supportive and productive environment”.

Lighter Reflections: As I tweeted, I received the most unusual reason for someone cancelling a meeting. They had to go to identify a body. Nice to know that a dead body is preferable to meeting me. I also had the pleasure of watching my son in his Combined Cadet Force parade on Friday which reminded me of that saying “Why is everyone out of step except my Johnny?”. Actually, the Air Commander was amazed at how everyone was in step, without a band or other support. He also told Guy that he was “very smart with great shiny boots”. We won’t mention Guy’s poor dad spending hours with a damp cloth, water and wax in the lead up to the parade. To be fair the boots were then handed over, a week before the parade, for further care by their owner.
