One Small Step
Finally, after years of moaning about something that really annoys me I have taken positive action! Avid readers of this blog (Hi Mum) will no doubt recall verbatim my post about F3 (https://www.f3.org.uk) in November last year:
For those who can't be bothered to read the link (understandably - I struggle to read my turgid prose too) I essentially moaned how F3 is happy to take my money for advertising in their brochure every year and yet I am not allowed to attend the conference as I am just a pesky recruiter and not a practitioner. Ok, maybe I sweat the small stuff too much but I have bored colleagues for years about this as I think that in the eight years or so I have worked in this sector I should be seen as a part of the community. Oh dear, do I sound like the guy who was neglected by his father aged five and has inclusiveness issues?
Anyway, no more! This year I thought it was time to stick to my principles and not advertise in the brochure for a conference where I am not welcome! Finally, I have made a stand!
Gosh, I feel so proud - whatever next? Finally become vegetarian? Refuse to spend thousands a year watching the Mighty Leeds United live due to the lack of ambition on the pitch displayed by Chairman Bates? Tell my friend 'pretentious Steve' to stick his kind offer of his house inThailand for Christmas?
Hmmmm, I think one small step at a time....
