BETT 2011 - We need a volunteer, Tues - Fri
Due to a member of staff having sudden and unavoidable work commitments we have a slot on the stand for a volunteer to help out. It will be for Wednesday and Thursday (staying in the hotel Tues, Wed, Thurs nights). If you have never helped out before and would like to see what it is all about and can spare the time please let us know. We pay for the hotel and your food (pretty much everything really), you just have to get yourself here. You will be given enough time to take a wander aound BETT as well.
Please note that this os for someone who has never helped out before and would like to see the organised chaos that is BETT for themselves!

I would love too but this means pulling a sickie all week and not seeing my little girl for 4 days Infact, if I can wrangle the time off, I will sweet talk her mother. lol

I would love to help out Chris but I am only available Thursday. Put me on a reserve list if this helps any!

It's more preferable to have one person for the entire period due to admin overheads

Of course that is fine, I won't be staying over so in terms of costs there I would be fine, just feed me during the day!

Very sorely tempted ... will try to persuade boss that I should be able to get some time off ... and figure out how to break it to the wife :-) ... oh and figure out how to avoid doing the things I was supposed to be doing those days!
Do you need the volunteer all evening as well as all day? I live just N of London so wouldn't take too long to get home

Don't do it
but this means pulling a sickie all week
A colleague from a previous job pulled one to run in a road-race - he forgot that the race might make the papers and hadn't thought through the consequences
You could appear on TV!

Well I can make those days, if you still need someone?

Sold to the gentleman from Snodland?! Can you make it to London (Novotel London West in Hammersmith) for about 1pm Tuesday? Ric and John (as designated grown ups) will be there to handle all of the rooms etc. You'll be in With RobK

I really hope you know what you've let yourself in for!

Yep that’s right Snodland. Yes I can make at that time, and I am a XL I do indeed, and it’s an IPhone 3GS. Trust me I think I’ll be able to do it. Thanks so much for this opportunity.
