Totally irrelevant picture of Sirius and a box

Below is the agenda sent to me today for a meeting next week. The names have all been changed but you might be able to detect a touch of blarney. Which item do you think I'm looking forward to most?

Good Practice seminar


1. John Bloggs – welcome and rationale for Good Practice events
2. Sheila Smiggs – ‘Synergy in action (core skills)’
3. Harry Higgs – 'The College YouTube site’
4. Barry O’Potts – ‘Using communication delivery to prepare students for external exams in their vocational subjects or why I like to re-invent the wheel every time I get a new class and how that ages me prematurely’ *
5. General Good Practice discussion
6. Agenda for future meetings
7. AOB

* Let me assure you, I know exactly how he feels.


  1. So what have you done to deserve such an exciting life? I bet you can't wait for that meeting!

  2. Good old Barry O'Potts.

  3. Oh, dear.

    So it isn't only corporations that have endless excruciatingly brain-numbing meetings?

  4. Ah, but the point is that Barry O'Potts has put it in a nutshell.

    Actually, it's not going to be a boring meeting. Or at least, not compared to some of the meetings I've been to in my life.

  5. Anonymous11:41 pm

    Looks like a presenter with a sense of humour! Sometimes they are a rare breed...

  6. I suspect 'doodling' skills will come to the fore at the mtg!

  7. Never met Barry but I feel sure I'd like him!

  8. Ummm, the red one??? I'll bet you'll have more fun than the meetings I have to attend. We always get a safety lecture. As if we aren't old enough to know not to climb on ladders alone, text while driving and fall asleep in the sun. I think they're afraid we might lose a day of productivity. ;-)
