Morning folks,

I may well be accused of being sad, ridiculous or trying to achieve the impossible.... Shocked

But...has anyone here tried to create a live forum...as in meeting face to face for discussions. OK before you start ripping my head off, this could be in a pub...where you discuss pure ITIL issues to share experiences, offer advice etc.

Even though while I'm writing this, I'm thinking I must be a sad ****** if I want to do this in my own time, I'd still be willing to dedicate a couple of hours a month to do it...

The only drawback is locality...are there many of you in the lovely West Midlands that would be interested......

There is a Midlands ITSMF group (think they normally meet in Midlands or Wolverhampton) but from experience I would say that they're a bunch of theorists rather than 'do'ers.

I might be interested in being part of a forum - I'm based 'oop north' but I'm in Kingswinford at least once a week.

Ok, I'm in Central Bham and don't mind a trek...

I am no longer receiving emails from ITSMF as I changed my addy but if someone could pass on their email/phone number it would be good. I have attended one of their meetings and I have to admit it was very good but I didn't think they have many meetings...

p.s. I have to admit I wandered around google to peep over some other forums, but they're either flooded by our cross-atlantic friends or they have turned into market stalls, trying to sell addidas trainers!

I am in london

The meeting for itSMF are usually all day ones and as a contract conslutant, I lose valuable money

The issue is that if you get official banking, your meeting becomes the least common denominator

A gathering of operational souls would be ok

but

It might be a bit of a trek for me, but I would consider going if the navigation wasn't too complicated.

OK looks like there's some interest here...

Well, it needs to be busy enough to be enjoyable and worthwhile, but not a 1:1 as people may get the wrong idea!

I could bring the samosas and pakoras, so now we just need:

1. To find a few more people
2. A venue that allows your own munchies
3. Someone to bring the tomato ketchup

Come on folks!!!

I am based in Milton Keynes, so could make a meeting in Brum, although sometimes midweek I am away training.

I live on the Warwickshire / Leicestershire border, so B'ham wouldn't be too much of a trek (although I draw the line at visiting Wolverhampton. I am far too middle class to do that type of thing).

Subject to domestic arrangements, would be happy to attend....especially if it involves a beer and a curry.

Morning folks.

I am quite pleased with the response so far! I think meeting in a pub for about 2-3 hours would be good (I could get a venue arranged) and then maybe move on to an indian...I would offer my house but I doubt my mum will cook for 12 buzzing ITIL'ers.

You'll all be too busy assessing her level of services but then again here's a couple of SLA's...

a) When your p1ssed, anything will taste 100%!
b) Waiting over an hour for your curry, demands a service penalty (in this case another pint) Razz

hehehe...

Hi Guys

Just wondering after reading these posts if anything ever materialised. Would there be any feeling for a meeting in a suitable beverage serving hostel in Central London?

This didn't materialise. In fact come to think of it now, who would want to spend Christmas drinks with a group of ITIL freaks! It's bad enough at work. No offence intended...I'm one of you!!! Mad

I am planning to be in the UK for a week mid November, and an ITIL forum could be good. Plans are flexible so in theory I could go anywhere, especially if live music is involved (and naturally, any discussions around ITIL will be music to my ears Laughing ).

Like Diarmid I do not drink alcohol, so this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be in the company of a teetotal Scot and Aussie simultaneously Cool
