11th November 2021 remember

Last week I went to the EIG conference in a virtual university environment. Worlds away from the "webinars" attended in the last 6 months. One could shake hands, applaud and hold private conversations with other attendees as well as visiting the exhibitions, university campus and DANCING! Only thing missing was a bar........ The speakers were excellent and engaged in their presentations. All round excellent experience. Thank you to all at EIG.

Contrary to all expectations, TSK have come up with a course at the Oaklands Inn week of 15-19 November. Will update here if it actually happens -- baji-naji -- so, not unexpectedly, that tanked also. Many apologies to the two guys from TRP who had hoped to audit online.

Still available for in-house courses, personal face-to-face training or (of course) real work. email me if you wish!

I "attended" the SAMCODES meeting in late October online, which was rescheduled to run for 3 hours every morning for 5 days. There is a week of my life I will never get back. Not a lot of interaction going on with the invisible audience. The setup SAIMM uses does not allow attendees to check out who else is watching or to chat with them, which is very sad. Attending conferences has always been my way of catching up with old friends and colleagues and meeting potential new friends and colleagues. This whole online scenario leaves out all the friendly argy-bargy over coffees and beers and the verbal fist-fights in sessions. To be fair to the SAIMM facilitators, they did try to open the meeting up on the third day or so by asking if the attendees wanted to be "panellists" which would allow them to converse but still no visible audience information.

Should be flying to London on 23rd/24th November via Paris. Again, limited faith in successful outcomes. Think positively for me everyone!!

Old news: Our amazing course organiser, Shaun of Spectacular T&C successfully managed our July 19-23 despite Level 4 lockdown and being stuck in Pietermaritzburg because of the riots and looting. We had 4 in the room and 4 online.
.
Sorry no plans for future courses as of this date.

A "class photo" for the July course! One of our participants did not have video capability. Thank you ALL!
