We had a planning day. Which is also very public servanty.
One of my colleagues wanted to know if it was appropriate to telephone people on a particular topic. One of my other colleagues commented that as public servants we are expected to actually sometimes talk to the public.
As a person who worked in retail for many years, this was not so much what I wanted to hear.
Still, I'd rather actually be 'the public' than a stakeholder. I would rather be the vampire hunter than just the person who holds the sticks.
