Is a face-to-face meeting worth the thick end of £20k when it can be done via video conference anyway? Presumably you're in a pretty senior job role in the company you work for?I'm in South Africa on business currently - but when I get home on Friday and MrsDibnah fills me in on the latest gory details I have missed over this week on #RSA-Gate I shall construct a suitably expletive laden update on this saga that could potentially cause even our most follicly challenged comrades to get a little curlier.
(Quick Coronavirus update - a team of 4 of us flew down to Johannesburg to meet 5 of our people here for a face to face set of meetings. Our arrival from plague-infested Europe has induced such panic in the office here that the 5 people we came to meet have all joined our sessions over video conference from their houses for fear of having to touch us or breathe the same air as us. Therefore we have flown half way round the world to sit in an empty Johannesburg office speaking to our SA colleagues from the safety of their homes in the suburbs of Johannesburg. Does anyone else feel that the thick end of 20k on flights and hotels for us has been a little casual cost-wise?)
