In 2020- 2021 , as can be seen in the insight sessions in zoom in the 2020-2021 directory we pivoted successfully into easy -attend, popular, and valuable insight sessions in ‘zoom’ from May 2020 and into 2021. We were even able to manage MORE insight sessions than the usual bi- monthly face to face sessions in St James in London. We held our very first face to face lunch in St James Square in late May 2021. All slidesets for these zoom events were carried in our usual end monthly members reports

On the evening of Wednesday 20th July we held a successful well attended national discussion in zoom moderated by T-L.com member Glen Maxwell Heron and his business partner Felix Spender on the ‘springboard opportunities’ provided by the hybrid workplace revolution, with the considerable stresses on senior management to capitalise on the benefits.

Most citizens only saw the tip of the iceberg of the remarkable achievements by those in the inner Covid management ‘core’ delivering extraordinary feats of purchasing and logistics for our 75 million or so UK citizens. Even now, in China, are having to apply complete city lockdowns to control the ‘Wuhan Virus’. Beijing cannot be popular with the millions of Chinese citizens affected by these huge lockdowns.
On Wednesday 19th of October we revisited, with valuable T-L.com member Emeritus, Garth Shephard, as our guide, the subject of ‘Changing Climates’ .. a vital topic, which we first addressed in November 2007, 15 years ago , at Chatham House in St James Square. The recent Glasgow climate event in the Autumn of 2021 (COP26) ukcop26.org was remarkable but the target of 1.5 degrees of global warming is now an unachievable goal, the climate changes are already with us. So what is the ‘latest picture’ and how are we going to adapt? we decided to hold this session in Zoom.

On Thursday the 24th of January we ran a very well attended event in the Nelson Room at the Army and Navy Club (the Rag) with a fascinating presentation by one of our great members Jason Sprague on what was already hitting us with ChatGPT and other remarkable manifestations of enhanced ‘search’ coming up. The speed of development here is already breath taking. But then Jason is a long way out in front on this complexity, having won our first AI project in 2022.

On Thursday April 13rd we invited member T-L.com alumnus here Scott Keyser, ‘the writing guy’, Author of two seminal business books. The first on ‘how to win tenders’ after a very successful career with the remarkable bid team of EY. The second on his ‘keys to successful writing’, where, as well as being a fine long term trainer of teams in The Economist, he has trained very many managers and professional service firms as to how to deliver writing that delivers. Remarkable though chatGPT is, it will miss with absolute certainty key aspects of ‘a proposition’, for it cannot peer into what will happen tomorrow (yet) More to be found in our members end- monthly newsletters.
