@Tony Bates-

Thanks again, Tony.

As to preaching to the converted and otherwise reaching those who hold the decision-making power, perhaps just having a track record to point back to, somewhat like developing the foundation for social capital, is a start? Along these lines, constantly pounding away at this will continue to lead to the teaching and undoubtedly interesting consulting and writing work you have done, all of which provides ongoing opportunities to continue to develop into higher-profile assignments (and thus influence). We all know that promoting change takes time . . .

Looking forward to chatting again; thanks for your stimulating week of pushing the boundaries on this work.
