Start the day by speaking at a Surveyor conference in Nottingham on efficiencies and procurement in Highways services. I push a line around shared services and joint procurement, managing to get in a few analogies about Robin Hood. I talk about public value and how we need to ensure that we don't do a reverse Robin Hood by stealing from the poor and giving to the rich. The Q and A is pretty good and I have a laugh by linking my answers to the great legend of Sherwood forest.
I also check out a few venues in preparation for next years annual seminar, there's only about 50 weeks to go.
In the evening I attend the 713 Goose Fair dinner and have some fum with Nottingham's finest.
