ICIS Training – London in springtime

Teddington Green1.jpgICIS Training seminars are in London this week. When I arrive on the second of four days, I am greeted with the news that it is a good group and the food is fantastic.


It’s a bright spring day (see photo of crocuses on the green today), and some delegates tell me they are taking advantage of the good hotel rates to see the London sights. I don’t recognise any of the delegates, but in the way of the petchem industry, it’s a small world so we all know someone who knows someone …


I’m paying special attention to Nigel’s papers on the changing world of chemicals and regulation, as I’m expecting to have to cover these for him later in the year.


Julia gives a spirited rendition of the pricing paper, throwing in some interesting stuff about Chinese ghost towns and flat screen TVs.


There’s a lively debate about REACH, of all subjects. This is usually a topic which sends everyone to sleep, but today we are gripped by the conflict between human values and economic risk.
