IBM have been busy touting their Watson Health application over recent months, so much so, that they flew Harrow’s Labour Councillor Anne Whitehead off to New Zealand for two weeks, just to present a one-hour workshop.
Luckily, Cllr Whitehead had family out there as well, so she could take to opportunity to visit them and do a spot of sight-seeing in the remaining 13 and a half days she probably had spare.
Cllr Whitehead’s 60 minute slot was over lunchtime on November 23rd in Wellington, NZ, so she enjoyed nine days in and around Sydney, before flying to Wellington for three days, and then moved on to Melbourne for her flight home.
- 13 November 2016 – London Heathrow to Sydney Australia
- 22 November 2016 – Sydney Australia to Wellington New Zealand
- 26 November 2016 – Wellington New Zealand to Melbourne Australia
- 26 November 2016 – Melbourne Australia to London Heathrow
Curiously. Cllr Whitehead’s declaration of hospitality says the conference ran from 13-26 November, which doesn’t actually make clear she was visiting family, 220 miles away for over the week beforehand. Indeed, that declaration wasn’t made public until iharrow asked about it – and certainly longer than the 28 days that councillors are required to report such freebies within.
Transparent? Well, something smells bad.
