Sam’s shot of me at my desk Charmian and JP Renaut after the SustainAbility/Volans London session Charmian (Love) and I, with BlackBerries Water cannon at the Water Conference in Stockholm Dots of light on the wall as Sam and I confer at SustainAbility on Friday 19 August
Life is becoming a bit of a blur at the moment, mainly – I suspect – because my head is full of the various sections I am drafting for the new Volans website, due to launch early in September. One thing we did recently was to present the latest developments at Volans to the SustainAbility teams, in London and Washington, DC.
Meanwhile, Sam and I continue to hang out at SustainAbility for much of the time, because BT and others have been distinctly Stone Age in their wiring of the Volans offices in Bloomsbury Place. Phones and printers are now stacked on the floors, but a glitch means yet another delay. More positively, we have been building the Advisory Board at a rate of knots and now have some quite extraordinary people aboard, all to be announced in a couple of weeks.
This week kicked off with a flying visit to Stockholm, to speak on a panel at the Stockholm World Water Week event. This was to launch the ITT Watermark. Outside the conference centre, an extraordinary series of water cannon fired coloured columns into the air, though by the time I came out into the evening they seemed a little flacid and tired.
Apart from the endless typing away on the website content, I seem to be doing a fair number of telephone interviews at the moment. It seems that despite the gathering clouds of recession various media are still intersted in the corporate responsibility agenda – and where it might take us next.
