The Beaufort Ballroom Theatre in Ebbw Vale, Gwent, Wales
I took a trip up to Abergavenny today, the weather was fine (in patches) but no canines of any colour appeared to be both liberated and mobile and I would nnot have claimed ownership in any event. However I can fulfil the promise to show you a photograph. If you don’t understand all that then you are not old enough! In practice I took the bypass to the south of Abergavenny and then the Heads of the Valleys road to Beaufort to speak about complexity in government to the Borough of Blaenau Gwent. My slides are here. The event was set up by Paul Thomas at the University of Glamorgan who has been working with the Council for some years. The location is pictured, it looks a bit bleak from the outside but was warm and welcoming inside. In major part that was the audience who were open to thinking in new ways. When you get good feedback, your own delivery improves and the whole thing is more enjoyable. Its also good to present in your home country, a shared history creates a common use of language and communication is easier. One of the big subjects raised was citizen engagement, something I plan to blog about shortly. I’ll also talk more specifically on that subject tomorrow when I am back in Wales, this time in Cardiff docks, a significant location in my own family history. More on that tomorrow.
