See you next week in Bristol or in Bangor in June

Next Monday Albert is running an excellent 1 day programme on Regiopost and labour standards in public procurement at Bristol University. Attendance is free and the programme looks great. I look forward to seating in the audience relaxed enjoying the hard work of others instead of running around like a maniac on the backend...

On June 9th and 10th I am taking part on the Procurement Week Bootcamp 2016 which will be held in Bangor. This is a paid event (contrary to previous years) but the £99 fee for two days seems more than reasonable. It will be great to catchup with my former gang at the Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies in addition to a number of colleagues which will be in attendance.

In case you decide to go to the Bootcamp my recommendation as a former Bangor resident is to stay at the Management Centre. Do not let the name fool you, it's by far the best accommodation in town.
