We thought we d seen them all. Often a seminar produces stylish speeches and lyrical recommendations, but we d never seen a participant s poem as the summary report of a meeting (although Spore Mailbox does receive readers poems regularly). Maybe it was the relief at the end of a fortnight s hard work that drove the regional Question and Answer Service (QAS) workshop in Kingston, Jamaica, to put its findings into rhyme. Fifteen participants from eight Caribbean states, with resource people from Ghana, the Netherlands and Trinidad and Tobago, covered all the steps of operating a QAS (see Spore 94, section Links). The emphasis was heavily on human contact: understand your clients, network with your peers, market to the target, and know yourself above all, what you know and what you don t know. All in all, this CTA workshop marked an important step in the devolution of agricultural information QASs throughout ACP regions. The QAS service centre at CTA (address page 15) can provide more details, a detailed report and the full poem. Here s an excerpt: The personal touch, remember to share And we ll all agree it was worth being here.
