So, one down, and one to go. Sam has just started 6th Form College, as did Tash three years before him. And guess what - it's a completely different experience for and with him than it was for Tash! Good, but different. So, we're flexing here! Again! Sam's still living with us while Tash is now living away, and we all have much to learn from each other before he sets off on his adult journey - I'm relishing the thought.
Many different books have been written about parenting. There's probably a book just in Mandy's and my experience of being and learning to be parents. But it's our story - a never-ending story - and we're too busy and engaged in living it to write it down and share it. Except this blog, of course.
To conclude, I'll just quote you from the text message I sent Mandy as I left Tash to drive back to Brighton yesterday evening - "7:20 Just leaving now. Choked. Nx"

What I do know is that I have a professional and organisational story to share, which is not yet finished. I hope that the participants on the day - and afterwards - will empathise with my story, will learn something from it in and will want to contribute to it. I don't have all the answers, and I want to learn from the collective wisdom in the room and in the wider L&D community, just like everyone else.
So what do you think? Am I taking the right approach? Are you put off by the thought of PowerPoint and corporate templates? Any hints and tips for me? Any burning questions that you'd like Clive and I to deal with on the day? All comments and questions welcome. See you in Birmingham.
