HI Babetter - keen to reconnect because I see a role for your knowledge + training to support current major bid programs I'm involved with. Am overseases, but expect contact from an associate of mine called Alan Rankins soon.
Hi Babette, you are looking fabulous! I will return your call, thank you so much for taking the time. I was in mentoring sessions with 2 fantastic organisations all yesterday afternoon. I will join the other groups you have mentioned and look forward to catching up.
Yes, I am intending to get to Aussie at some stage next year for a holiday, but could easily work that around an Art of Analysis III or Wargaming course! There's also a potential big CI project on the boil tho, and I think it may be beneficial if I pop over and have a chat with you if it goes ahead too.
Yes, I'd love to join the Women in CI group, so have signed up.
