East to West without a rest!

Full Association meeting in Edinburgh's Dynamic Earth Centre, next door to the Scottish Parliament. We get a good turnout with in excess of 50 delegates attending and we have one of the best debates in years. Bad start to the day when I receive a parking ticket outside my hotel, despite the fact I have paid at the meter.

Guardian and Custodians of Public Services

In London today to meet the Public Sector Editor of the Guardian, David Brindle, to discuss mutual opportunities. We chewed the fat and shared ideas and agreed a few opportunities to explore. David is going to provide us with some of his colleagues to chair sessions at some of our political fringe events and we are going to provide some opinions on key stories in public services.
