My colleagues and I were struggling to articulate a coherent vision for a new research group being put together at our University. Jimmy ran a workshop with a group of colleagues who were struggling to find a way to engage with one another and helped us with great tact and humour to find common ground. Jimmy worked with me after this event to capture a new organisational concept in a very concise and readable two page document.
