Staring pensively at the printer: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Share Button

I’ve got to be on my best behaviour with this week’s newsletter because I’ve got a new boss starting on Monday. I need to make sure I get off on the right foot and give him the impression that I do some work. I’ve already got a foolproof plan for his first week in the office: any time he asks me a question I’m just going look at him with a pained expression and say “Sorry boss, I’d love to help but I’m just really busy at the moment, can I get back to you on that once things have died down?”. Then I’m going to print something. Nothing says ‘I’m busy’ like printing something. I might even swear at the printer to show that I’m really, really busy printing important documents but the printer is slowing me down.

Having said that, my diary is looking fairy empty next week. Shout if you fancy heading to the pub at 4pm one day for a ‘meeting’ and for me to moan about my new boss…

For VIPs only: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Hello and welcome to the new exclusive Platinum Club members only Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You. After asking people to reconfirm their details earlier this week I can confirm that there are at least 17 people reading this, which is good. If it was only 16 I was going to print it out and deliver it to your offices by hand so I’ve saved SSE some travel money there. Another great piece of work that will no doubt be ignored at my annual review…

Enjoy this week’s news

Horsing around: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

‘A fool and his money are easily parted’, as the saying goes, and I’ll be living proof of that tomorrow as I line a bookmaker’s pockets with whatever bet I put on the Grand National. I don’t think I’ve ever won, even in the year I got a bit overexcited and backed about half the field. Still, if you need a hand picking a horse some of the runners and riders are below (and there’s a full list here). I enjoy potato based products so I’m going to go for Chase The Spud (50-1); think of me when it falls at the first…

Enjoy the news.

On the tee, from London: Have I Got Social Enterprise News For You

Share Button

Yawn. I am a little sleepy this morning as I was up late last night watching The Masters and my powers of recuperation aren’t what they once were. Before you even start writing to me to tell me that golf is boring and that I should have just gone to bed earlier and not bothered I’m afraid your argument holds no sway with me and you are wrong.

It does also give me the opportunity to do a golf themed newsletter, which if you don’t like golf will be a real joy, I’m sure.
