Working for the White House Press Corps

Before I forget, I should mention that the President of the United States visited our school last night.

As much as I’d like to say that I was there to shake his hand, and his wife’s hand, I will have to admit that I was with the White House press corps, making sure they had power, wireless Internet, and power adapters for US to UK outlets.

Still, it was really educational to see the school prepped for the visit, and also to see the press corps at work. We had a press room set up for them, with food and refreshments, but they were in full work mode and were instantly on the wireless sending out data, checking online sources, and getting their jobs done. Very little was eaten, and 15 minutes later they were on the run to the next location.

The president was on site for about 20 minutes, gave a short talk, and then was off to prep for the G20 Summit today. I bicycled home in the dark about 10 p.m., through the quiet city streets of London. Another day at work done.
