#MeetTheTeamMonday – Meet Shawna, a Business Manager and Fiscal & Policy Analyst in the County Executive Office. Shawna started at the County in 2012, but she has been in finance for more than 15 years beginning in auditing. It might explain her focus on process improvements and creating efficiency. Originally from Northern California, Shawna worked at UCSB before the County was fortunate to hire her. We value Shawna’s spirit of innovation and customer focus. As an example, Shawna once developed and implemented a new software system to replace a paper process that included training 1,000 system users. She performs her work with a smile and positive attitude, and is known to say, “You have to create your own sunshine, every day.” In her spare time, Shawna loves spending time with family, long-distance running with friends, playing with her beloved dog, and making boutique style candles. #ThisIsWhoWeAre#ThisIsWhyIWorkHere#leadership#teamwork#publicservice#Renew22#SantaBarbaraCounty#accounting#finance#businessmanager#fiscalanalyst#policyanalyst
Here is one of my favourite #academic nonsenses. The sentence above (and its many variants) is what you spot on the first page of 99% of #papers presented in academic venues. A void statement: why would I ask colleagues not to circulate my paper if I am presenting it to them? What was the point in sending a paper proposal, working on the paper, and then presenting it in a conference? Do authors realize that, more often than not, papers are made available online by conference organizers after (sometimes even before) the conference? If you ask me not to circulate or quote your work, you are implicitly telling me that your work is rubbish, or that you have no clue of how quickly information is shared these days. Below is my approach: I encourage academic circulation, asking to those interested to check with me whether a newest version of that paper is available. Not that I expect my papers to go mainstream, not at all. But if a chance exists to liaise with other academics, students and practictioners, and to receive their feedbacks to improve your work, that is #openknowledge . #scholar#professor#policyanalyst#lecturer#workshop#seminar#debate#epistemic#thinktank#networking#university#openmind#cliche#publishorperish#picoftheday

Frequen flyers must stick to the rules: first, always have a reading list (either on paper or digital); second, spare some time for taking notes; third, best seats are those on the aisle, so you can stretch your legs; fourth, get your coffee before getting on the plane: it will cost you less and you'll enjoy the energy boost just when it is needed; fifth, better have a 'b plan' in case you are too tired (a movie or a book would work just fine). This morning on my flight to Riga, in Latvia, I had a great working session, and almost finished the keynote speech for tomorrow's conference on lonbying regulation.
Time to explore the city before going back to work. #conference#scholar#professor#policyanalyst#academia#university#lobbying#advocacy#law#politics#policymaking#europeanunion#writing#publishorperish#picoftheday
