The Odanglesex Chronicles: The Away Day

FROM: Dale Brashcon,Strategic Deputy Director of Transformational Excellence and Strategic Vision

TO: All Transformational Excellence and Strategic Vision

Hi! Good news! On the 24th we're all getting together for the most marvellous experience which I'm sure everyone will find fun as well as really helpful in doing our jobs better. You had the date already, but please note that because of the flood of ideas for what should happen and consultants' advice on the optimum time space for such events, it's now a full-day event instead of just in the morning. We're all meeting at the West Odanglesex Childhood Experience Centre at Much Yelling near Oakhead - nine a.m. prompt, please.

Bring outdoor clothing, but that doesn't mean hard hats! We've been able to meld a number of your brilliant suggestions about the day into the programme, which will be with you shortly. Basically the morning will consist of a number of interactive and participative activities indoors, while the afternoon will be outdoors in the Adventure Centre.

If you have any difficulties with the date or programme on medical or compassionate grounds please let Kelly Pattrick know soonest. Otherwise I'll see you there!

FROM: Reema Narlikar, Transformational Excellence Officer

TO: Scott Fitzwilliam, Transformational Excellence Officer

Scottie: Just got Dale's gush about the (squirm) away-day. Horrible thought: maybe the Great Leader and he have taken seriously that anonymous suggestion I posted about being chased naked by a wild boar through bramble thickets? Could they take that seriously? They could.

FROM: Kelly Pattrick, PA to Kenneth Spotlessnob

TO: Dale Brashcon

Dale: Kenneth will be arriving at The Experience Centre at about 10:30. He's really looking forward to the day.

FROM: Hamish Carpenter, Senior Transformational Excellence Officer

TO: Edwin McEvoy, Head of Local Projects, HM Treasury

Edwin: Sorry, but I've got to reschedule that meeting we had at 3 on 24th. I'm now required to be at an all-day Away Day. It was only the morning. There's a three-line whip.
