Interesting post, reveals quite a few home truths in my opinion!
But I managed to keep the Sponsor who was in charge of me in place right until a competitor became my boss. I have still have no problem with IM Andrew Martin but the Renaissance Academy Board and Potential Board do have problems with a competitor being my boss.
So it is revealed, "Competitor became my Boss", so from this we can infer that the Renaissance Academy were in line to profit from a Chess For Schools Project?, I guess now the certification scheme is in Andrews grasp it leaves the Renaisance Academy rather high and dry to make revenue. I guess that would make the Board rather unhappy. As I have said before I have no problem with anybody making money from the labour they put in for any project like this, it takes a lot of hard work, but why all the secrecy?
If you guys want to know who went by the wayside due to this Forum, it was Parcel Force
Looks like we did them a favour then, there won't be any sets to shift any time soon in any event.
This forum will be the fall guy, but I am afraid this is the Internet age, no more hiding, no more sweeping things under the carpet. We have only been voicing concerns and pointing out weaknesses that sadly have proven to be true.
This further 2 week delay in my mind confirms this project is absolutely dead in the water, It does not make me happy to say this, however, one good thing can come of it, a total shake up of the ECF to its very core.
