The Hot-Seat

A message from our Chairperson, Gary Bowerbank.

""Have you booked your place at our conference? If not, why not? It is fast approaching, final touches are being put in place and there is still a chance to grab one of the remaining seats. See our website for details.

There are also a few spaces left in our FREE Young Professionals Training Day (14th Nov), so again grab them quick.

As the clocks across Europe have gone back 1 hour, the dark nights are upon us and before we know it 2023 will be behind us! Doesn't time fly when you're having fun? Or when it seems that every new project is the top priority, and we are all in a situation with too much to do and not enough time. If only we could keep moving the clocks back, perhaps we'd find enough hours to deliver it all....probably not. I think that even if we had a 48 hour day, we would still fill up the time. What we need to do, somehow, is use the time we have more effectively. Cutting out waste, stop reinventing the wheel, and prioritise property. That prioritisation is not limited to the work tasks at hand, but also in life.

Making sure we prioritise time to relax and recharge. This will mean different things to different people. I like to get out for a short run (even in the dark evenings) to switch-off. What do you do? I'd love to hear."
