I’ve just been sent an e-mail dis-inviting me from the PSNGB meeting in Leeds.
Bit of a shame given that I’d received a confirmation and bought my rail tickets on the strength of that confirmation to travel from Kent to Leeds.
I’ve advised a number of local authorities and others on digital infrastructure and public service transformation – Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester, Leicester. I work with communities on Next Generation Access and chair the NextGen series of events.
I was planning to liveblog/tweet the event in Leeds for nothing because I think that the PSNGB stuff should be visible – it’s important to all of us.
Anyone else been treated like this?
Here’s the confirmation
Here’s the e-mail:
Dear Industry Colleague
Thank you for your application to attend the PSNGB Roadshow event on 10th or 12th July. Unfortunately demand for places has greatly exceeded supply and we have to prioritise public sector requests followed by PSNGB members, where only one place is available per member organisation. Therefore I am very sorry but on this occasion we are unable to offer you a place.
However I would like to extend an invitation to attend a future PSNGB meeting as a guest if your organisation is not already a member. These meetings provide members with the opportunity to participate in the debate around the rapidly evolving PSN market place, to network with other suppliers and to understand how we are developing key areas of the relationship with the PSN Authority and the other public sector stakeholders.
