Phone Conference

Tonight we had the first of what is set to become a monthly telephone conference for the 5 Greenbelt Operations Managers, the Festival Manager and the Programme Manager.

I always find telephone conferences rather awkward and stilted, lots of pauses followed by two or more people attempting to talk at the same time.

Fortunately there wasn’t too much of that tonight and the meeting was really valuable. This year there’s going to be lots of things shaken up at the festival including lots of major changes to the site layout. Needless to say there are major implications in that to the way we operate and indeed programme the site. Being able to get key people together to identify these issues early and then pass them on to the various teams is going to be invaluable in making it all work.
