No.353 Of Meeting Opportunities

I had a business meeting the other day in Mal Maison Belfast. It's a nice hotel but I'm beginning to wonder if it's the right place for a profesionals-in-suits type of meeting. It's very dark and does have the appearance somewhat of an Edwardian Brothel.

I was in Manchester yesterday for a finance course. It was a great course but an awful lot of pain for just one day's learning. It involved a 5a.m. start, rip off parking at the airport, a couple of uncomfortable flights in a Flybe tube of toothpaste and a stroll in the Manchester rain to and from the gig.

As I learnt during the day it's not the cost of a course or the inconvenience of getting there but the opportunity cost of being out the office and out of production for 1 day. We all have hourly rates it seems.
