Another Awayday..

Just a quick post to say that I spent today in London with the other Heads of School at Sussex University (or most of them). We met in the British Library Conference Centre, which is next door to St Pancras station. It wasn’t in the library itself, so I wasn’t able to try out the famous echo in the British Library Reading Room…

After leaving that meeting at ten-mile I had another appointment, near this relatively well-known landmark..

I won’t divulge the purpose or location of Meeting B as it’s a bit hush-hush, though not in a bad way…

    Why did the high-ups of Sussex U meet in London rather than in Sussex?

    Someone once had the amusing idea of asking people what time it was in full view of the Big Ben tower. About 1/3 said they didn’t know.

      Anton, we always meet once a year off the campus. Sometimes it helps to get away from the usual routine and focus on longer-term issues. In this case the choice of London wad motivated by the fact that our guest speaker was travelling quite a long distance and had to get a relatively early train back home. Hence the choice of a location close to Euston station.
