I've just started a new topic for this meetup, bringing the discussion over from here: [url]http://www.manager-tools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2552[/url].

Mark has kindly volunteered his and Mike's (probable) attendance if we can have a meetup on the 16th May either at or near Heathrow.

Wendii is checking out venues at T5 following helpful suggestions from Hugh, and we're thinking about elsewhere on the Piccadilly line too.

The (currently) intended set up is food and drink and meeting other Manager Tools listeners, and getting to say 'hi' to Mike and Mark too of course!

Please add expressions of interest to this thread and any venue suggestions.

Many thanks - looking forward to seeing folks there.

In June I will be moving back to Europe after spending 5+ years in corporate America. Great experience!..time to go home ;-)

Will not be able to attend the London meet-up, but would like to ask those who will, to gain some insight as to when the next European conference will be..2008? early 2009?

I propose a wonderful venue...my home town BARCELONA!. All meetings I have organized there have always been VERY successful, especially when it is still kind of cold/wet in most places in Europe..

Mark and Mike, if you decide to take me up on my suggestion, I will be happy to help make the arrangements.

I'd like to meet up on April 26th too, but put me down as a possible as I need to rearrange a prior engagement. By the way, did anyone mention what time?

Peter/PierG,

You're going to let geography get in the way of our big reunion? How could you? ;-

Looks like there are going to be a number of familiar faces ... can't wait.

Mike

SteveSherry's picture

What's the plan for the evening?

I'd love to go, but it's going to be at least 4 hours drive each way.

Tamtam10000's picture

Hi All,

Apologies - the meetup on the 26th will start at 7pm.

We aim to 'finish' at 9pm, so you can get home at a decent hour if you want to, or stay at the pub for drinks etc.

Hi there,
I only joined this site today. But would be really interested in meeting up with you on the 16th if it isn't already booked out.
Be good to see some other members and am pretty local to the area.

Add me to the guest list - Looking forward to attending.
See you all on Friday.

anthony_d's picture

Am looking forward to meeting you all, as a relatively young, inexperienced manager i relish the opportunity to meet with you all. Espeically with the broad specturm of disciplines and experiences will be a good one!

See you friday!

cakintola's picture

Mark, Mike, Rowley, Wendii et al

My apologies - I won't be able to make it this Friday at Hounslow. :(

I'm having ongoing medical treatment and Friday looks like it won't be a great day.

Sorry to spring this on you at short notice. I trust the evening will be as great as the last one, and I look forward to attending another session some time soon. :D

Very best wishes,

Carl

Hi folks,

I am sorry not be able to come for personal reasons.

I'll miss it ... It is fantastic that Mark and Mike could make themselves available to come to Europe. THIS is dedication.

I wish you have a perfect time together. I am sure you will get a lots of motivation and fun from sharing together.

My best regards,

Cédric.

anthony_d's picture

Am not going to be able to make it either :( got a project pushed on me just after I wrote the post about being able to come and looking forward to it. Absolutlely gutted.

But the project (basically turning around an area of one of our branches that is causing concern) is a massive thing for me to have been given, and trusted with, so i've to focus on that right now. Sorry guys.

matthelm's picture

Sorry chaps, but I'm going to have to duck out of this one too. The perils of working in Financial Services during the credit crunch are really taking their toll on my free time.

I'm gutted that I won't get to meet you all again, but I'll be keeping my eye out for future UK meets.

Apologies again,
Matt

With regret I need to be elsewhere early evening.

I was looking forward to my first meet up.

Hope all goes well.

liz_mcgowan's picture

Hi Wendii

I didn't actually attend the conference - I was away on business, but my husband attended, and i would love to come tonight if its not too short notice?

Let me know if it will be a problem, otherwise i would love to come - I am trying to convince my boss that the conference in London is a must-go-to event, and would love some ammunition to take to the meeting

Best regards

Liz McGowan
