Another bike ride last night means that I have a few more miles under my belt in preparation for the BHF ride.

Yesterday’s landmark photo question was clearly too difficult. For those intrigued, the needle at the south end of London Bridge is called the Southwark Gateway. It was designed by Eric Parry Architects and it is used as a meeting point for Southwark Cyclists rides and other events.

Today’s photo is of St. Magnus the Martyr, which is just around the corner from the Monument. It was one of 51 churches built after the Great Fire of 1666, but by whom?

I was at our Bank office all day.

One of my priorities was all about driving forward our global desktop design, which has stuttered over the last few weeks due to the move. The new design, which needs to work effectively for the business in Sydney maximises a desktop PC, local Internet breakout and either a Citrix desktop, Citrix published apps and or local apps.

The other priority was all about driving forward our ambition to provide a best in breed support function. This is hugely ambitious, as it will take us a long way from where we are today exploiting technology and focusing on what good service actually means to a global organisation like ours.

Sometimes you just want to deliver everything now, so it was nice to make some progress on some quick wins today around our Connect project in relation to bugs and simple communication.

There are now only 79 days to the Olympics. Yesterday’s blog event was the 400 Metres hurdles. So easy!

Today’s. A guy called Brian Jacks won bronze in this event during the 1972 Olympics, although his fame was achieved through a famous BBC programme. Name the event and programme.

The highlight of the day had to be the fact that Matt Cook, one of my colleagues, has offered to service my bike in preparation for the BHF ride. What a legend!
