This morning we met with JB. The meeting was scheduled some weeks ago, but - in the melee that is life on the road - until last night we hadn't given any thought as to what we would actually talk to the man about. Our primary goal, it was decided, was to bring The First Tee to the Mayor's attention. From here we would seek whatever support the City (or Supercity, as it will be reincarnated in a few months) could lend - e.g. administrative support with events. We struck somewhat of a roadblock though. His Worship, Mr. Banks, thought it would make a lot more sense if all charities (or at least those in the Auckland region) were rolled into one, such that (1) giving support would be more efficient and administratively easier; and (2) the said charity would be easier to promote, everyone involved "being up in lights." Hmmmm. Sensing the fruits of our perseverence weren't going to pay dividends, we changed tack.
Being quite intrigued by the man behind the job, I asked John a couple of quick-fire questions about himself, to get an insight into what makes him tick. I'll leave you to decide whether I had any success - see below.
