An Audience with… Sharon Kemp

Is she an aging comedian, celebrity chief or a Chief Executive?   Can we expect much laughter from the audience at in jokes ?     Given the over use of the word ‘vision’ possibly a mystic meg.   Not much humility  but plenty of hubris with a title like this.     Patronising as in  “All voluntary and community organisations are encouraged to attend this meeting, not only to find out about what is happening at RMBC, but also to raise awareness of the impact the sector has in Rotherham and how important it is that this work continues.   Who is going to have awareness raised ?  Not the community or Voluntary groups they known what they want to do its RMBC who is the saboteur   .

” how important it [this work] is”;  is this awareness a result of a blinding flash of light or just bollocks given their history especially ‘Risky Business’ scandal.

Will she cover the mess she left behind in Derbyshire  and how she has the vision not to let it continue to happen in  Rotherham?

  1. What the hell does she know about people who volunteer their time for no payment.

    The usual big fat salaried condescension.

    I can advise her that her RMBC outfit hasn’t got a care for the volunteering community of Rotherham and her weasel words will not alter that situation.

  2. This is just one of a series of similar ‘audience with’ events that Vol Action Rotherham have held over the last couple of years.
    If you sign up to the weekly VAR newsletter you will get to know who is in the hot seat next time. In fact VAR ask readers for suggestions of who the next ‘audience with’ should be

    • I am grateful to you, for your clarification. My readers would appreciate some form of feedback, at least on Sharon Kemp and how she went down with participants?
