Clermont vs Wasps punch up, & a cameo from 60 year old Alan Black

first_imgWednesday Dec 19, 2007 Clermont vs Wasps punch up, & a cameo from 60 year old Alan Black When Clermont Auvergne and London Wasps met at High Wycombe on the weekend for their fourth round Heineken Cup fixture, who would of thought we’d see such a classic match filled with high drama and rugby of the highest quality.Both teams scored some incredible tries, with a first half being dominated by the future England flyhalf supremo, young Danny Cipriani. Expect to see him in the White jersey in the upcoming Six Nations…For all the domination that Wasps had in the first half, Clermont were equally as dangerous in the second. Classy tries from wingers Aurelien Rougerie and Vilimoni Delasaukept them in the game.With tight, physical encounters such as this, the tension sometimes gets the better of the players, and a fight broke out when Canadian flanker Jamie Cudmore was cleared out and retaliated by throwing numerous punches on Wasps prop Tim Payne. Cudmore got yellow carded for his part, but the most startling part of the whole incident happened seconds after Cudmore’s first punch had been thrown.James Haskell went in to help teamate Payne, but somehow got involved in a scuffle with Clermont prop Martin Scelzo. This was close to the advertising boards and 62 year old Alan Black, an RFU Official and former Wasps captain, lost the plot and took it upon himself to get involved.Black struck out at Scelzo with a rolled up match programme, purely out of instinct in seeing what was going on around him. From what I can tell he didn’t even connect, actually hitting his own player ironically.Likeable ‘Blackie’ as they call him, is the leisure manager at London Wasps, and has since been banned from the touchline for the remainder of the season. He’s apologised profusely for his out of hand behaviour, stating he simply lost the plot and got caught up in the moment and has accepted his punishment for an act that, in perspective, was similar to an old lady swatting off a villain with an umbrella.It’s a good thing he wasn’t holding a beer bottle at the time.

Council HR body is set to increase its influence

first_imgCouncil HR body is set to increase its influenceOn 10 Dec 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article FrancescaOkosi talks exclusively to Personnel Today about the challenges ahead for theSociety of Chief Personnel Officers and outlines how a new qualification andimproved alliances will spearhead the organisation’s modernisation plans,by Paul NelsonThecontinual restructuring of public services will see a radical overhaul of localgovernment HR body the Society of Chief Personnel Officers (Socpo) next year.Socpo’sambitious change agenda includes launching a local government professionalqualification in HR, a possible merger with its Scottish equivalent andentering into strategic partnerships with the Government, unions, employergroups and public sector bodies.NewqualificationSocpopresident Francesca Okosi said the organisation had approached academicinstitutes, including Warwick University and Henley Management College, toaccredit and facilitate its HR in local government qualification. It is beingadapted from the course run by the American public sector HR body, theInternational Personnel Managers Association.Okositold Personnel Today the qualification was central to Socpo’s strategy ofincreasing its membership. Thesociety expects to start offering the qualification in 12 months and aims toextend it to include an HR public sector qualification in due course, with NHScounterparts The Association of Healthcare Human Resource Management (AHHRM)already expressing an interest.Thequalification will be module-based, focusing on organisational development,leadership and making HR strategic.Okosisaid the qualification would probably take between 18 months and two years tocomplete, and it will not involve technical HR skills, as students should havealready learned these from the CIPD’s qualification. Socpois having discussions with the CIPD about sponsoring and/or supporting thecourse.”Iwant to have a comprehensive career development planner (CDP) so we can beginto form a career structure in local government and members can really furthertheir careers. It is my baby and I intend to see it through to the end,”Okosi said. Socpowill launch the qualification to members at its annual conference in Brightonnext March, a year after Personnel Today exclusively revealed the project.Thequalification will be split into three parts for senior, middle and junior HRprofessionals in local government.SeniorHR professionals will be taught leadership skills, while middle managers willlearn about organisational development, equality and diversity, workforceplanning, and how to operate in a political environment. Junior professionalswill receive employment law training and be involved in shadowing and mentoringschemes.Okosibelieves it is vital to develop the young HR professional’s skills andknowledge of local government to help them further their careers in the sector.The mentoring scheme will enable them to work in all four council types:metropolitan, county, district and unitary.MembershipdriveOkosisees the qualification as vital in enabling Socpo to attract young people tothe organisation and increase its size and power.Lastyear, the organisation outlined its aim to increase its membership ten-fold to5,000 by 2006, through opening up its membership – usually confined to seniormanagers – to all local government HR professionals. But 18 months on,membership has only increased by 150 to around 600 people.Okosibelieves the main reason is that, without the introduction of thequalification, Socpo does not have much to offer to lower and middle-ranking HRprofessionals.”Ifwe are going to get the numbers that we want, then without a doubt we are goingto have to do it on the back of the CPD,” she said. “A lot of ourmembers come from district councils where money is tight, and at the momentthere is not enough to offer them.”Forauthorities or individuals to pay, we will have to give them more thanemployment law updates – such as the chance to enhance their skills.”The5,000 in five years might have been over-optimistic, [but] if we can double ortreble the current number, then we will have done well,” she said.IncreasinginfluenceToincrease HR’s voice and political influence with local councils and at nationalgovernment level, Socpo is hoping to form strategic partnerships with otherorganisations, including a possible merger with its sister body, The Society ofPersonnel Directors in Scotland (SPDS).”Thereis only so much that an organisation of 600 people can do, as we all havefull-time jobs. So we have decided to work in strategic partnerships with otherorganisations, including the Employers’ Organisation and AHHRM, and decide whois going to take the lead on issues and we can participate.”Okosisaid a new UK-wide local government HR body would have a different name andshould be formed in around a year.”Ithink we [Socpo and SPDS] feel there is a missing part of the jigsaw, meaningthat we would be even more powerful if we represented the whole of the UK.”Keento increase Socpo’s influence on national government policy, Okosi isdetermined to resurrect its strategic partnership with AHHRM by including theAssociation of Directors in Social Services (ADSS).LastMay, the two public sector HR bodies announced they would form closer ties.They aimed to work closer together on professional development, benchmarking,staff secondments and research, because they felt the CIPD did not support HRprofessionals in the public sector.Butwith two president changes at both organisations, the link-up has fallen down theagenda. Two joint conferences have been cancelled due to a lack of memberinterest.”TheADSS is the missing link. If we can bring the three of us together, then wehave a real common agenda with there being more and more mergers going on atlocal level between health authorities, PCTs [Primary Care Trusts] and parts ofthe social services,” said Okosi. “Getting ADSS involved is themissing link between social services, health and ourselves.”NewAHHRM president Elaine Way told Personnel Today that her organisation iscommitted to the partnership and would explore ways of taking it forward.Linkswith unions are also to be formalised. Okosi has meetings planned with Unisonand T&G local government representatives and hopes to announce significantprogress at Socpo’s annual conference next March.”Socpopresidents on a one-to-one basis have had good relationships with the unions’bosses, but never at a formal level,” she said. Inher last four months as Socpo’s president, Okosi wants to focus on increasingthe number of women progressing to senior positions in local government as sheis is alarmed that the number of women at a senior level – particularly that ofchief executive – is actually decreasing.Socpois to set up brainstorming sessions with the Equal Opportunities Commissionthat could lead to research into local government’s glass ceiling.Okosibelieves that the politicians and the recruitment agencies opinions on whatmakes a good leader needs to be updated, while the experiences of other seniorwomen may put middle managers off applying.  www.socpo.org.uklast_img read more
