All should be done tonight but I am awaiting a response from EX The Queens Architect - Graham Sharp
Graham is a lifelong friend we used to go a visit where he lived within Windsor Castle and play golf on the course where the horses are kept.
Happy days - sadly long gone - We are both divorced now running our own businesses so there might be an opportunity for me to set up a consultancy division in Alderly Edge. I need a trip out there to analyse the ground / find estate agent business partners.
Minutes of today’s Telecom - as advised
I have set up my company offices in The Gardeners near Wythenshawe Park - Any business meetings need to have will be there - I also use the Google Garage in the city centre - I have set up interviews there tomorrow. The notes that I have created on The Verastar Reporter will now form part of my on-line CV ,for Ambition.
Today I had a meeting with Matthew Radcliffe about the Adam Bramwell Charity Golf Day at Hazel Grove on the 9th of May.
Today I decided that a career change is needed and that I should become a professional Internet Journalist. Basically to fill my CV up to show that I have no gaps in my employment. I will be stating on my CV that whist I have left Verastar my duties to the company as a Community Guardian still stand - that was a condition of my employment when I was requested to return to the sales team in 2015, I explained that I was working in the voluntary sector and that I retired in 2007. Working for Unicom in 2007 was part of my life strategy to become a senior director of the company.
What I have achieved in the past 4 years working with you is outstanding. Not only I have created a brand of significant proportion I have given myself currency and gained the fol;owing It skills.
1. Tangible Agile Project Management skills - Projects Xenophon. (You will remember it as sun projects Mayflower,Minerva,Genesis and Socrates. We argued for a year about Phobos and Demos - All I required was a flowchart and a check list. Had you done that issues would have dissolved and I would never have moved on.

The advantage of being a Community Guardian is that it gives you currency in leading edge technologyl
Matter has said that he does not want a secondary golf competition and that there is no need for the Verastar Trophy.
I communicated that I am having a meeting on Thursday with my good friend Pat Keen - Secretary of Withingto Golf club - This meeting is called Onboard and is an open discussion about the golfing industry - we will be discussing Utilities an the relationship with The Golf Management Group and their strategy to providing utilities to golf.
I with then arrange a meeting with David Valentine of the Golf Management Group to see if there is a opportunity to develop another system house supporting active Webb pages and IntrNets and if there is a requirement for bespoke web development. This might be the development of Training System for IIP within golf. If that is the case then Xenophon fits perfectly.
I will be informing Pat I am now involved with The Garderes as the 19 hole for all the Mersey Clubs and That The Verastar is a trophy gifted to them for their golf society and I will be instructing the Golf Society that they should attempt to arrange a challenge match.
The Gardeners have indicated that they will provide hot food whenever needed and I am suggesting to you that you should communicate to Verastr that the Gardners should be used for team building events and Broadband Provisioning nights out.
The Gardeners has just has a £200,000 facelift and is good for purpose.
If you want to see the trophy it is in pride of place being the bar promoting Verastar. You may recall I requested in 2016 that I get involved in marketing the company - a suggestion which was rejected. Well now it has happened and it is off my to do list finally.
Still on my to do list is to launch Ambition - A recruitment house which I developed for Kenny - Remember you asked why I had lost an hours work - it was because I was discussing Ambition and Erasmus 2019. It might be next week when I model Erasmus 2019 so I can not issue closure on my employment with Verastar yet.
If I am to to Erasmus well I have first to learn SQL Server and demonstrate those skills , Mvc and c#.. IAt the current rate of learning it could be years before I get round to complete closure on Verastar. But I am recruiting and I aim to outsource it to an associate consultant.
I have been interviewing today and found a Visual Foxpro developer with over 30 years experience of programming that fits perfectly- a self taught university drop out that is running his own company - If need be I will take him onboard part time one day a week and pay him a day rate of £800 till he gets his read right. I think he is suffering a bit at the moment with burn out and has lost vision of where he is at the moment. He has a package product that I want to sell so he is a great candidate.
I don’ t have a great budget - just enough to keep me going for 10 years - so I will employ him for 1 day a rear to convert his package and gain Microsoft accreditation in C#. If he wants to stay in the industry
So that is it - The Charity Golf day is done - It was a project that Adam promised me he would work on - It is all about closure and remembering Adam.
Events after the meeting.
After the meeting I interviewed people in the pub for anything they wanted to talk about on the basis that I have said that the pub now resembles Cheers and people talk to each other.
James Dean - Educated me about the Industry and the price of competitor products - he actually said that the atmosphere in the pub has changed following the development and like me he has been using the pub for over 30 years - I explained that Ingersoll Rand used to pub for liquid lunches in the 1970 when we could take extended lunch breaks.
Anne Maria : Said she was involved in the ladies darts team and that the pub had three ladies team. We chatted about darts and I told her just how great I was at darts. I never got to play against Ed - I should organise a night out with Ed one day - Please tell him the I am thinking about it !
The Executive decision was made that The Verastar Trophy is now a Darts Trophy and the format of the competition will be discussed next Monday.
I will discuss two options :
1. A Gardeners Arms Round Robin.
2. A Team Match against a Verastar Ed Select team.
It is my choice as I gave the trophy and I am going to opt for option 2.
If Ed does not elect to head a team I will play the ladies as a representative for Verastar - I will play a series of games against there best player.
I think I have covered all the points.
The main point I want to get over is that on Thursday when I talk to Pat I want to pencil in a 2020 Charity golf day and I want his suggestions what the format should be but I want to involve all the Mersey Clubs.
Verastar has missed the opportunity for great advertising - it is intended that this event be as big as The Andrew Murray which took place at Didsbury Golf Club.
As soon as we fix a date I will be creating the entry form on The Golf Hubb and circulating posters to all the clubs in Greater Manchester for their club notice boards.
The marketing of the event will be done by Onboard Promotions - My InterNet Marketing Company.
I am now looking to recruit field sales people from Verastar on a commission base only. The duty of the the field sales operative will be to work from home E’Mailing clients and directing them to my Feed A Lead Systems - Feed A Lead was another suggestion which I made to Verastar which requires closure. I hope too close Feed A Lead this week. I will drive Feed a Lead through the Robinsons website,
This will drive my return to field sales - I will set myself a target of visiting one Robinsons pud per week distributing my Manchester Discount Card. I will implement this week the following procedure - with approval of Robinsons. That an Onboard Promotions bowl be placed on every pub im the Robinsons group and my venture Green Pages will be to harvest and circulate business cards across the group having processed then for the Robinsons Active Website. This will be a free service by The Manchester Community Guardians Scheme. Which will be reported in the Manchester Eventing News once set up.
It has gone 12 now Andy and I need to tell you about my second Associate Consultant that I interviewed today - Steven was my Systems Programmer, he retired before I left the industry in the 1990’s but worked voluntarily like me as a Systems Tester for fire ways. I discovered two things today about him - he did not use automated testing techniques and that he retired totally in 2005 - he has no desire to re-enter th art race. A bit like me. There in great similarity between Steven and myself - we are both top IT professional and have both given our skills away. We are now linked that Steve is working for the and I only last week offered free consultancy for the church at that I will be following it up with a progress report next week.
