Monday 7th Nov. 2016.
So a quiet, but busy and a really enjoyable weekend has passed, with some reflection on what I have achieved this last week and considering the next steps. Friday was spent finalising my keynote speech on Marketing, which is to be presented to a year 11 class studying Design and Technology. After working in the Exhibition industry for over 18 years it's interesting to record what actually is entailed when a product is to be marketed. The 'keynote' is set for 30 mins and on my last rehearsal it was just over - so a little trimming to do? Or, maybe talk a little faster without losing the students concentration!
Marketing covers so many aspects and is a major part of my work load now as I prepare my photography business (London Tours and Tuition) and bring it to market. Letters have been completed to send out to the hotels, leaflets are next to be printed and dates are to be set for future Meet-up groups for tutored street photography walkabouts.
This weekend I enjoyed the autumnal weather taking a walk with my wife (Jane), through Greenwich Park - a fresh cold wind with warming coffee, bacon sandwich whilst watching everyone enjoy a beautiful day out with their families and dogs. One small problem though occurred whilst taking some photos, a 'speck' appeared in the viewfinder! It's not on the sensor, it doesn't appear on my images - So, its on its way back to Fuji for repair - thankfully under warranty...!
5 Things I did this day.
- Reviewed my keynote presentation.
- Answered emails from show invitees acceptance! (The list is growing nicely.)
- Edited the photos from my Greenwich Park Walk.
- Made the third log fire of the Autumn!
- Came across an idea to improve my 500px voting!
