networking?? February 12, 2008

Posted by thehutch in youthwork.

one of the things that bugs me at youthworker get togethers, whoops, networking events is the one upmanship conversations. It winds me up but the reality is that I am as guilty of falling for the routine of having a better story. This monty python sketch is probably as good an interpretation as anything….a class video

The person who introduced you to this video must be really nice and cool!

When we were thinking over the whole male/female youthworkers issue we picked up that this “antler” activity was more prevalent in (though not exclusive to) male youthworkers. I think my all time favourite moment was two female childless youthworkers witnessing two male (dad) youthworkers determining which of them knew more about breastfeeding!

Thanks for a reminder of this wonderful sketch!

roothie…..not sure about that 😉

Sarah….think you are right, most of the conversations (in fact all!) are between the male species of the youthworker! Now that is something to ponder.

Im not sure I agree, I tend to see more female workers ‘Showing Off’ more. I am not a lover of youthworker gatherings (coffee drinking skives). I prefer to keep my stories to a minimum and just listen to what others are sharing (bragging) about.
