I took my Prince 2 project management exams today at the British Council (its cool, you can take the exam at any British Council office anywhere in the world) - after months of self-tuition with a cd and the incredibly boring Prince 2 manual. The hour long multiple-choice Foundation exam is a doddle - I'm sure I got over 90%. The three hours fifteen minutes Practitioner exam I'm a lot less sure about. It seemed very straightforward, too straightforward in fact - basic questions referring standard elements from the manual to the scenario. Either I've done quite well or I've ballsed it up. I have an agonising six week wait for the results. Hopefully it'll be a nice Christmas pressie.

Meanwhile, loads of work is banking up. I have my Final Report to write on my EU project (finally I get to tell some truths about the lack of technology leadership in the Federal Government). Then there's Abidemi Sanusi's tour, which is really exciting. Then, a mate and I are organising an intensive 3-day transformational workshop, bringing the bright boys from Elemental over to Abuja from the UK in December. Should be very interesting. There are a few places left, so if you or someone you know would like to come along, drop me an email - its great value given you will come out transformed..

Meanwhile #2, I'm hoping I get to meet Funmi Iyanda manana, she's in town. I think her blog is the bogs dollocks, especially now she's sticking vid feeds up there. I predict a Nigerian blogging explosion in the next few months to rival Iran..

Hey Jay,
I'm sure you've passed...You're right the first part is a doddle ..The second part is a little tricky as its an open book exam...As for the actual course, if you think the manual was boring,.... try sitting in a classroom for 8hours x 5days at the early stages of a relatively easy pregnancy with sleepsickness as the only hormonal side effect...Needless to say the only thing that kept me awake was the constant reminder of the £2,500 cost; which unlike the rest of the students i had forked out from my pocket!

The drinks are on you in xmas...

Haha! Melanie's other lover, aye, what? All right, I'll have to outdo that.

Even after all those exams, you're still taking them. You really are a masochist!

Seeing as you love the whole picture taking malarkey, I thought you would be interested in these photoblogs by friends of mine: www.remskibrown.co.uk and www.alakija.com I've watched as these guys have developed their techniques and styles over the years. Truly something. If you can, check out Alakija's Naija photos. I'm no photographer but I think they're fantastic.

Hey J,

Cool that you've hooked up with NJE - I like it when I can help forge connections.

Keeping the faith, baby
