Ulster is still rocking

TS is pretty upset to see the festival season over for another year. This weekend, we had to take off our tight-fit drainpipes along with the skull and crossbones ripped T-shirt and place them into storage.

But it seems that the Northern Irish branch of CIPFA just can’t stop rocking. At its annual conference in County Down, it invited professional rock musician and Aberdeen Business School resident Dr John Park to ‘demonstrate creativity in action’ through his music in order to ‘unlock the inner creativity of senior public sector executives’.

Not only that, it also invited former Chicago Bears American football team pre-match motivator John Cassis.

TS just wonders if a merger does go ahead, then it could perhaps mean for an interesting change in dress code for future conferences from suits and ties to jeans and knee-high boots!
