I wish I could fly
Day started in Southwark, with light snow falling, at Kids Company building at 38-40 Blackfriars Road. Glorious, moving artwork by children, including ‘I Wish’ clouds. Given the Volans mission of helping the future take flight, I was particularly touched by the ‘I wish I could fly’ one. This was a meeting of the Trustees of Virgin Unite, together with a number of MDs of Virgin businesses. Very stimulating discussion. I spoke alongside Chris West of the Shell Foundation and Heerad Sabeti of Fourth Sector.
Then back to Volans for series of meetings, including sessions with the likes of Tetrapak and Earthscan, then across to Green Park for a meeting with Tellus Mater Foundation. Heading back to Barnes, I heard that our bid for a session on ageing at the 2011 Skoll World Forum has been successful, which is encouraging.
