Please let me know

Seems fine to me. The sequence would then look like this (see end of
email) ...... allowing you to get away by 1410 and Paul to be away by
1445. It would be certainly good to keep your involvement in the event.

I'll prepare a briefing note about the sort of issues this session may
cover and we can talk about it. In the meantime, I am writing to you this week alerting you to our 2nd funding round process in Tyndall Centre which starts now and continues over the winter. This is an invitation to comment
from the Trust about our research strategy and to communicate where you
feel Tyndall should be putting in effort.

And in the longer run, I would also like to explore possible co-sponsored events with you where our two agendas come together in the form of outreach
and engagement.

I wonder whether we could meet up in London for an hour sometime to share views about this. The 12th, 14th and 22nd November (all pm) are possibles for me.
