  1. Hi there, thanks for the day, it was interesting.
    Having been to a “competing” day the same week, I have some feedback for you:

    Your day was good, but the other day won out. I’ll tell you why:

    First: there was time set aside to listen to “us” the applicants; to hear about our story; our context; our vision. There were 2 different slots in the day where this happened. By contrast, the CMS programme was all about CMS. (Both days were the same length including lunch).

    Second, a suggestion: if current students are going to attend these open days, train them to be hospitable!!!! I started a conversation with one of them, we were the only 2 people in the room. Then another current student entered, and the two of them immediately started discussing between themselves a topic I couldn’t be part of. I tried to join in, but it was all surrounding “what did you think of that” (event they had both been to) – they emphatically did not welcome me into the conversation. Not impressed!

    So… intended or not, my overall impression was (rightly or wrongly) “CMS are pretty excited about what they’re doing, but not especially interested in me or why I’m here.”

  2. Thanks for the feedback. Hope it works out well for you. Do stay in touch and keep an eye on things here as we will be developing practitioner sessions, an annual gathering for pioneers in the region amongst other things that may be of interest.
