Conference in Brighton

Julie, Ben and I spent the weekend at Brighton’s¬†Hilton Metropole whilst I helped my colleagues to prepare for the Union’s biennial delegate Conference, for which I am a principal organiser alongside the General Secretary John Smith and his PA, Jane Austin.

Due to my flying out to Johannesburg this week, at very short notice, I have focused on arranging the staging and audio & visual requirements as much as possible in advance of the event’s first full day – Tuesday 25 July – in partnership with my MU colleague Maddy Radcliff and the events team at ProMedia. ¬†Thanks to the sterling efforts of everyone involved, all that could be installed by the end of today was successfully in place.

This afternoon Julie and Ben enjoyed a ride on Brighton’s high-flying 360 seafront attraction, whilst the Union’s Executive Committee discussed policy and their handling of the tabled Conference motions.
