e4Business, Greenwich and the Cutty Sark

Posted in Cutty Sark, e4Business, Greenwich by Tony C on June 1, 2007

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.

    Dear Tony

    Came across this when doing some work on e4business 2008

    How are you, we are running e4business 2008 on the 26th March, once again at Greenwhich. It would not be the same without you, would you be able to present again this year. I have a higher level of support including financial from within the TIC so we should be looking at a substantial turnout.
    Having found this I thought that I would try this link. But I will give you a call in a couple of days.

    best wishes for 2008

    Mark Walden
