Last day of our retreat – it’s been very productive. Having Bruno here has been good as we all head out for a daily walk
Good day deciding our key messages & gathering evidence today
We have to complete an impact case for the REF and managed to get some funding to come away for a week to complete it in one hit. We have booked this cottage in Gloucestershire so arrived today (with Bruno) ready to talk impact & evidence
We went to Guildford today to see the Devils play – we lost 3-2 in over time.
Started the year with a road trip to Milton Keynes to see the Devils get their 13th straight win. Was an easy 5-0 victory.
Our annual Christmas trip up to Coventry to see the Devils play today. We won a hard fought game 3-2, after winning on penalties last night. After being woeful last season it’s good to see Coventry competing again.
Did keynote this morning then managed a couple of museums before heading home
I am giving a keynote tomorrow so flew to Amsterdam this evening & was driven to Rotterdam. It was about 10pm by the time I got into the hotel, so quick cup of tea then bed
Leaving for home today
I did the Toronto waterfront marathon today. It was tough – my slowest marathon of the year at 4.55. The course was flat & weather good so can’t blame it on that. I think a week’s conference beforehand with indulgence didn’t help, but just didn’t have mojo for it. Anyway, it’s a completed marathon, I won’t worry about time in a few weeks.
