Another LL resignation. This time it's consultant Wendy Weller-Davies. This organisation has seen its entire board and most of its hired guns resign. It was a hoot seeing the excellent Jay Cross flown over business class to sit around on the LL stand for a bit, then fly back. He was as bamboozled as the rest of us. Meanwhile the guys are flying off around the world, and off on cruise ships, on dubious attempts to improve Yorkshire's e-learning lot.
I know the detail is tedious but it was the ousted Chair and myself who had to point out to the CEO the illegal nature of the AGM. He promptly hired lawyers to confirm his position, only to receive advice that we were right. He was then 'forced' to declare his first AGM null and void. After desperately trying to get us back as Board members (we all refused), for a second AGM, he failed. and has had to recruit a board from scratch. In short, he hadn't a clue what he was doing and had to pay lawyers to confirm that we were right and he was wrong. By this time the board members (all doing this for free) were disgusted and had resigned for good.
Millions are being spent on an organisation that is clearly dysfunctional and not achieving its aims. Why doesn't Yorkshire Forward (or maybe it takes the Yorkshire Post) stop this madness?
