Thank you very much - praise indeed.
OK, enough gloating.
We need to remember that EUMETSAT are governed by the EUMETSAT Council -
is made up of the Met. Offices of the Member States.
For that reason one needed to 'pursued' several parties rather than EUMETSAT
itself and to this end many of my agency contacts have played a role.
This takes time - which I have, patience - which I have, I don't know about
skill', there are some who would strongly disagree with that notion.
But it always appeared to me that 'banging the table' or making demands was
right way to go about it and would have got me nowhere.
Yes, it has taken time - a long time - but we got there in the end and if you
look at the MSG data data 'price list' you will see just what a privileged
position we are in.
And, there is even more good news to come.
