Michael Osbaldeston | Partnership Director of the World Skills team

Dear Amy,

We are back in the office today having cleared all 90,000 sq m of Excel on time!  I have just watched the 3 presentations and shared them with the team here, our chairman Chris Humphries and Deputy Chairman David Cragg at the Department of Business Innovation and Skills and I suspect we will share them with many more people too.  They are inspirational, and they exemplify why we made the bid back in 2006 and why we have committed the effort we have over the past 3 years to deliver WorldSkills London 2011 to the standard we did. 

Please say a very big Thank You to your class, and  we are so pleased that they not only enjoyed their visit but were fascinated and engaged their enthusiasm certainly comes across!  Its the 4th one I have been to, and I am still amazed and moved when I see competitors from 50 pus nations working together and striving to be the best. Eric says the next one will be in Leipzig and he is quite right, but hopefully one day one of your class will be at a WorldSkills event, not watching but representing their country as a competitor.

If youd like one of us to come down to Riversdale to listen to the children tell their story, do ask, it would be an honour to hear them.

Very best wishes,


World skills 2
