So, it’s Thursday evening, 2 days before panel members start arriving, and I think I speak for Hannah, Katie and myself when I say: “PHEW!”
We’ve all been mega-busy with the Panel. It seems like we’ve covered just about any job you can think of: sorting out programmes for the Panel members, organising volunteers, e-mailing and telephoning people from every corner of the globe, getting sponsorship deals, and even getting together fancy-dress costumes and glitter!
So, while it’s been a whirlwind, crazy-busy few weeks and months, we’re ready, we’re willing and we’re able (with the help of coffee!) to make the Panel week a great week for all involved. Look out for the Panel members’ blog posts and I’m sure me, Hannah and Katie will be in touch after the week is over to give you our insiders’ take on how things went.
Before I sign off, I just want to say a HUGE, HUGE thank you to Hannah and Katie who have worked tirelessly to sort things for the week. And a BIG thank you to all the volunteers and people who have helped us organise things. With all your help, enthusiasm and support, we’re confident that it’s going to be a great week!
Bye for now!
