This morning I gave a speech at the National Centre for the Performing Arts, aka NCPA, aka The Egg. It was for the launch of a big training programme between the venue and the Royal Opera House in London, aimed at stage managers, sound engineers and lighting technicians, and from across China, not just NCPA staff. Half of it will be in Beijing, half in London. We've given some money, and it will also be part of a wider programme we're running on tech skills training in other venues across China. Speeches over, the MC asked if there were any questions, and after a micro-second's pause with no immediate response, wrapped it up. Which was OK, I was in a hurry too.
