Shooting down the east coast of England once again before the Base 2010 show tomorrow. First class seat with plenty of space, so I’ve just been finishing this month’s Low Carbon Agenda and sorting out a presentation for a client board presentation in York on my way back up on Thursday.
On Thursday night I’m a guest of lawyers Muckle LLP at the Tyneside & Northumberland Business Awards 2010 where Muckle are hoping to pick up the CSR gong. It’s a black tie do, and I’ve only got an hour or two at home to get into the penguin suit and remember how to tie a bowtie (hint: there are some YouTube videos that are much more useful than the infernal line drawings you get with the things).
I will be rooting for Muckle on the night, not just because they’ve invited me, but because they’re really good at making “green” in a smallish service sector business – I’ve certainly pinched a couple of ideas off them. Service director Julie Parr features amongst the interviewees in The Green Executive and I’ve used them as a case study elsewhere too.
Speaking of The Green Executive, the book proposal and two sample chapters went to the publishers last week and I’ve now got to get on with polishing up Chapters 3-18. I’m really pleased with how it is looking and the initial feedback is very positive.
Finally, the techies will be transferring this blog from Blogger to WordPress as the former is stopping the particular service we use. So if it all goes a bit off kilter in the next couple of weeks, fear not, all will be fixed in due course.
