Room with a view


In over 13 years of facilitation I have been to some lovely venues in the UK and Europe. However, being a Londoner we often take what is around us for granted.

Until this point, I would have probably ranked the view from Riverside Suite, IET Savoy place, as the best. This is one of my favourite rooms in London to facilitate a workshop and the best thing about this room is the balcony. When the sun is shining during a lunch break we (the delegates and I) can hang out on the balcony, eat lunch and marvel the view.

But I think this view has a rival!

Today I facilitated the project review workshop, for the £215m Tate modern project.  I arrived at the Mace project office at about 9:00am the session was due to start at 13:00. I did my final prep and was taken to the East Room so that I could set up. I stood outside and when the doors opened the bright naturally lit room just beamed a fantastic view.

My first words were "Wow...I must say, this is definitely a room with a view".
