Brooklands Museum

On Wednesday I went to a work related conference in my capacity as the principle buyer of safety equipment for my departments Field Inspectors. The conference itself was interesting in a dull sort of way (five hours of presentations about 'occupational hand care'!) but the setting was much more enjoyable - Brookland's Motor Museum. When the lectures finished most of the guests, including myself and my Boss, shot outside to take a quick look around this surprisingly diverse and interesting museum.

The conference may have been dull but it had its compensations...its a hard life, but somebody has to do it!

  1. Wow! I wish the events i have to trudge along to were held in places like that. Usually anonymous office blocks with strip lighting and whiteboards is all I see!

  2. Looks like a great museum. The type that concentrates more on restoration than making the place super smart and Disney like.

  3. Looks like something out of Iron Man. A stable of racing cars, a bomber with escort and ordnance and a supersonic executive jet to boot.

  4. I'll be at Brooklands again for three days next week - we have a client right next door, but looking through the fence is as close as I get to the museum.

  5. Good Lord, Lee. Why can't my conferences be at a place like THAT ?!? What a cracking place for a conference...even with the 'occupational hand care' lectures!

Thank you for leaving a comment. I always try to reply as soon as I can, so why not pop back later and continue the conversation. In the meantime, keep rolling high!
