My reputation precedes me!

Yesterday I attended a design meeting for a new project. It is in its early stages at this point. The client contacted me and asked if I would attend. Apparently the author/SME had asked for me. We had worked together on a previous project, and he felt that the working relationship had been positive. He couldn't remember my name though. Instead he referred to me as that "bossy woman from L&D".

So, if you hear anyone talking about needing someone bossy for an L&D project, it's probably me they're after.

Let them know where they can find me.

hehehe - from the L&D departments I have worked in I think everyone could be described as 'that bossy person' ... or perhaps that 'loudmouthed attention seeker'!

:-)

Bossy, but you know your mind. It is always reassuring to work with people who know their minds. I am a drift wood Karyn and I love the solid rocks like you! Hugs

this post really got me thinking... i have been looking for "a bossy person" in L&D for a while. I know you have got your hands full but I could really use some advice. If you get a mo could you mail me at toby [at] digitalaprents [dot] org?

@mick Yup! That would be me, too. When asked for three words that best describe me, I usually say "loud.loud.loud"

@rina You say the sweetest things! Oddly, I don't see myself as rocklike at all. In fact one of the reasons my marriage works as well as it does is that, when I have finished bouncing off the walls and fizzing and buzzing and waving my hands about, I can find my rock of a husband exactly where I left him, smiling fondly at me.

@toby Done. I guess I had better mention here (as I have done in the email) that, depending on what it is you're asking, I might be bound by restraint of trade agreement. I might not, of course, but I feel I need to put that in writing.
