e4Business, Greenwich and the Cutty Sark
It doesn’t seem like twelve months since I last presented at e4Business in Greenwich but I had the pleasure of once again talking to a number of small business’ about Flexible Working and Mobility. Thanks to Mark Walden who runs the Think Big Programme based out of the Thames Innovation Centre for inviting me back. It was also good to catch up with Ian Hazelwood from Peerless Consulting, he’s always great value and Peerless are one many unsung heroes of MSPP.
The Royal Naval College where the event was held always looks great when the sun shines and getting there early meant I could wonder around without the tourists. King Charles Court is home to the Trinity School of Music and hearing their practice drift across the courtyards as you walk to work everyday must be better than a double espresso.
On the way home I turned right out the college gates to take a look at the burnt hulk of the Cutty Sark. It looks bad with many of timbers either destroyed or heavily damaged, however the metal super structure appears to have survived scared but intact; I think that is largely due to the wooden cladding and deck acting as insulation during the fire. The front quarter of the ships hull is untouched and if I know anything about large wooden structures it looks worse than it is.
