Sorry, all the slots for this show have been taken. We hope you’ll sign up for the next show.
Signed up so far:
'Just. One. More. Thing.' Don't work in operations? No idea what juggling the numerous different elements of running a busy Visitor site entails? Never spoken to the general public? Perfect! You are the target audience for a brief introduction into how asking for just another tiny thing to be done leads to the collapse of the whole Ops house of cards.
In the right amounts plants can kill or cure you. When you work in operations at a Garden though, you’re slightly more concerned by the prospect of killing your visitors than curing them. Find out what it’s like to work with a Living Collection that inspired Agatha Christie - and how these plants came to be openly displayed to the public.
I do the communications for Wikimedia UK, the charity that promotes Wikipedia in the UK. There are no jokes in Wikipedia, because it's an encyclopaedia, but I can probably cram a very minimal amount of mirth into a talk about Wikipedia and museums.
Do you need to know how you can approach having a overgrown child in your office (and what benefits we bring)? I'm Alfie, currently a trainee at the British Museum. I come from a family trades men, bare knuckle boxers and firemen and I want to tell you how I reacted as a working class boy to the craziest situations like meeting ambassadors , a man who's wife is a duchess and misspelling Tutankhamun
