Hi Romy,
I'm delighted that you have found your way on to this list and look forward to your comments. Amongst other things, I am going to Australia in summer of 99 to work with Brian and his Open Space  friends to see if I can lend a hand in moving Open Space  forward in his territory (whatever that may be--I always fancied that his territory was the globe :)). So--of course I need to know more about the camel trekking.

And I wish very much for you to write a story for us about that product development that had its time so dramatically shortened with assistance of Open Space . It is so very important for us to record and share these stories as we work with Open Space  to create a better way of being and doing together.

Blessings to you,
Birgit Bolton

Wow Brian

what an invitation.

this Monterey space is getting extremely difficult to miss out on.

by the way I shall be in Oz from 11th December until middle or third week
in January - in WA - down south - helping my 18 year old neice with the
camel trekking business she has just bought!

I would LOVE any excuse to spend more time in Oz.  I may have lost my
residency (courtesy of the Aus. High Commission in London, and along with
many others..... a long story), and...... I still do not give up hope of
spending MUCH more time down under.

had a wonderful time on a quick visit to Sydney a couple of months ago, on
behalf of Andersen Consulting, and managed to catch up with a dozen really
good old friends (and 3 kids) in an impromptu party in my hotel room
overlooking Circular Quay and the Op. Ho.


we'll see

thanks for the good wishes


PS it's just after 3.30 AM, and I am about to have around 2 hours sleep
before getting on the road for the next gig.

just finished preparing proposal and logistical etc briefing details for
two events - one revolutionising new product development (bringing it from
18 months to 4 weeks, primarily courtesy of Open Space - all a great
experiment.......) and the other a three day Open Space for 90 nuns in
Dublin.  Lucky me.    Slightly deprived of sleep at present, however....
it's all worth it.

see you soon?!
