Sharing ideas and experiences drawn from 30 years as a Public Service Leader . Firm believer in the value of Public Service and the importance of vision , strategy , communication and engagement in making a positive difference to people’s lives .Hopefully helping make sense of what often seems a complicated world .
Hundreds of stress balls rained down on the pitch at the Valley today in continuing protests against the owner , the deluded but immensely wealthy Roland Duchatelet . Business success is not a sufficient precondition for sound football judgement as history indicates . However huge wealth does insulate you , it seems , from having to listen to anyone else including all the club’s loyal supporters.
Maybe the stress balls were a covert public health initiative to relieve tension – in any event the pressure eased when Charlton came from behind and then scored a last gasp winner to keep the faint flame of hope flickering ………… at least until next week at Loftus Road
