Busy week for Gateway Associates.
Further work following the publication of our clean question survey report entitled: “Will it ever be time for TEA?” Discussions with various interested parties on possible future survey themes, as well as articles on the aviation survey findings for selected trade journals.
For Paul, he had an added dimension this week of being at the University of Keele in Staffordshire. Paul is on the governing Council and it was one of the regular meetings. But it also included a tour of the recently refurbished Students’ Union. Paul was able to discuss developments on the student volunteering front – Keele is the first University to have a dedicated Volunteer Centre – and the work of the student led independent advice service, ASK.
Gateway Associates also works with the Founder of Grassroot Diplomat, Talyn Rehman and were delighted to attend the Initiative Awards 2013 evening which recognised the commitment by diplomats and politicians to close the gap between those who govern and the citizen. Paul acted as one of the members of the judges’ panel.
The end of the week saw Gateway Associates in Bristol visiting Hamilton House – a great community hub, buzzing with life and opportunities. Paul also discussed the work of Bristol Power Co-op with David Saunders.
A varied and fascinating week.
Next week Urban Land Institute Winter Council in Paris!
