Friday 4 May 2012


Had a very interesting day working with Mark Crabtree, running an Awayday for the Directors of the Durham Energy Institute.

Mark and I had met them all previously both together and on a one-to-one basis, so were able to design a day that addressed the things they wanted to explore and discuss.

As with all such work, the content is confidential.  What I can say is that they really threw themselves into the day, including staying on 2 hours beyond the intended end time to ensure we'd done all we could on the day.  They are a very talented and committed group of people, and I am confident they will go from strength to strength, addressing Energy issues from a perspective informed, from the outset, by the social sciences as well as drawing on their considerable technical expertise.

It was good working with Mark, too: the first time we have run an event like that together.  Days like that make me reflect on how privileged I am to do the work I do.
