Chris I hope all’s well and that 2009 has started out well for you. I’m writing to ask a favour… I’m running an public workshop based on my soon-to-be-released book, *Find Your Great Work* in London on Saturday Feb 21. The book’s been endorsed by some big names – David Allen, John Whitmore, Dave Ulrich and others – and the workshop will be provocative, fun and useful. The favour is this:Â If you know two or three people who you think might enjoy the workshop, would you pass the news along to them?Â Â All the information is here:Â http://www.boxofcrayons.biz/public-workshops/ (The early bird price ends this Saturday). Thanks for considering the request – and I hope you’re surviving the snow falls OK! Warm wishes, Michael
