Pooling Our Talents *

Spent last Monday's heatwave down in gorgeous Poole. Alas we were not flown down to laze idly on the beach but rather to meet with a team of designers / investors / manufacture, procurement and logistics / marketing & brand strategy, folk.

Again, it was one of those mountainous days. Up at 5:30am to fly at 8:40, jump first connecting train to make meeting at 12:15 (only a little after the 12 noon official start-time) Back on the 6pm train for a flight home at 20:20 and back through the door a little before eleven!

And, yes, I know what you're thinking. 6 hours does seem like a dauntingly long time to have the project (and ourselves!) under the spotlight but, aside from the crippling heat and my longing for the sea, the meeting just flew by in a haze of positive feedback and constructive points for development.

All in all it was an excellent day and we're continuing to work with the team as we speak. Should things proceed in this positive manner we may even have business related news to report!

* I wasn't going to... and then my better judgement left to get coffee. Sorry :-)
