Lol still can't believe Team Smunks didn't catch on when I said I wanted pizza and emphasised 'Hawaiian' pizza having finished Lanza and met the last qualifying criteria

Race Choice for 2015

Germany and Roth are easily in the top 5 long distance events, the support at each is fantastic, every town and village on each bike puts the bunting out and has a carnival.  Search Youtube for some riders eye view clips of Solberg (Roth), Heartbreak Hill (Germany).

The downsides at both events, e.g. split transitions, Germany’s 15 hour cut off and frequency of non wetsuit swims are easily out weighed by the professional, big event atmosphere and organisation.  I don’t think you’re ever out of site from a race helper at both events.

For the record Roth is about 200 miles from Germany (Frankfurt) so no shared roads on bike courses.

Klagenfurt (Austria) is up there in the top 10 Ironman races, great support, if im splitting hairs it’s a slightly harder bike course, but hardly noticeable.  Superb organisation and a lovely clear water swim in the lake with great support over the last 400 yards as you swim up a canal.

Pirate champs should seal any decision really?  the atmosphere and camaraderie you get when going to an event as a group adds massive extra dimension. 

Interview Help ' Dicuss possible scenarios'

They're probably looking for you to to succinctly describe a situation/s you've encountered, describe the problem, the options and risk/cost/benefit/impact's, the option you chose and why together with the outcome.

Think about your examples so they demonstrate key skills required for the role, e.g. Planning, negotiation, managing milestones, slippage, quality, governance, suppliers, 3rd parties, conflicts etc.

On a more constructive note, they'll be looking for real world examples 'what you've done' I.e. Talking through examples from the past as opposed to hypothetical examples.

They're probably l

IT PM worried about 48 hours to prepare! What do you do when a the exec want a report for an crisis meeting that's starting in an hour. Surely the jobs about planning, thinking on your feet.

I'll wage a guess that you work public sector?

Nervous newbie here

Just letting you know ill be popping along but on the wrong side of the fence this year. 

I don't have any requirements, unless there's a cool lager looking for a good home.

ETA should be sometime around 1.15 pm (it starts at 10.00 doesn't it?).  Not having done any training im hoping to wing it in about 5.00-5.15 hours, would have done more running but don't want to aggravate a long running hamstring glute niggle.  Talking of which I may need a massage

Thanks for all the hard work that goes into supporting, looking forward to seeing you all and will be buying the beers at Chandos post race.
