Please say Hi!

I've know this blog has had about 150 visitors in 5 months, or about a visitor a day. But I don't know who you are or where you come from.

Please feel free to say hi by adding a comment below - especially if I know you! (Not you, Mum).

Benchmark Bingo

For those of us lucky enough to sit through two or three benchmark meetings a week, there is just one tiny problem ... how to keep awake.

I have tried memorising kick-off presentations and mouthing the words in time with the speaker, but I'm pretty good now and it's not keeping me alert any more.

Not to worry, help is at hand. I introduce my new exciting game, Benchmark Bingo!

Print out the sheet and lay it in front of you during the meeting.
Listen attentively, and tick off each catch-phrase as you hear it.
The bottle of champagne is awarded to the first person who completes a row or a column (bottle of champagne not included).
And a book on self-help/building a better life to anyone who ticks them all off.
