Taking a group on a study trip

    I'm just back from spending a week in Berlin, managing a couple of school groups whose tours I had arranged.

    At the hotel, there were through the week another five or six similar groups from Britain.

    Over the time, I naturally observed many different management techniques and many different approaches.

    But I was struck simply with the dedication and professionalism of all the teachers involved - giving up precious half-term down time to help deliver a great experience.

    Very, very impressed, and don't let anybody say that it's a free holiday.

    It's even more responsibility than the regular day-to-day job.

    So if it was you at the Hotel Aletto - congratulations. And if you were with your group at another Berlin ho(s)tel, then I am sure everything I said applies to you, too.
