Some might say the Financial Services Skills Council has been in the spiritual wilderness lately, stumbling on the path to exam framework enlightenment and failing as yet to find its qualifications nirvana.
However, the Diary has heard that PR Kate Saunders is taking a transcendental approach to her work. Earlier this month, she climbed the Himalayas with Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley to meet the Dalai Lama.
Saunders had an audience with the Dalai Lama for a few hours, during which she examined his advice skills.
Although the Diary is encouraged by the prospect of a exam framework representing a spirit of oneness, an Ab Fab-style skills council would be more exciting.
