Snow in Damascus
Then last week we had a communications workshop for two days, and what an exciting time it was. Perhaps because there is still a lot of basic organisational stuff still unresolved, the sessions became enmired in issues of clarification - "when we say 'we' do we mean the Trust at a corporate level, or the Trust including the projects?" There were also some very debatable presentations on branding and messaging, and debated they were. The delegates, who are all intelligent people, wanted some equally intelligent reasoning and didn't feel it was provided. Some of what was presented was at best misleading and at worst unprofessional.
So the session ended with dissatisfaction and lack of resolution. I don't think I've ever been to a workshop where so many people asked me seriously after day one if I would be coming back the next day.
