Taiwo (Tony) Rotimi
An appointment this morning with Taiwo (Tony) Rotimi, Project Manager of LACBA (Leicester African Caribbean Business Association) Enterprise Academy, which is based in the Melbourne Centre in Highfields. 

I'm here to discuss a couple of book proposals that Tony's been nursing for a while. I've worked with him before in a freelance capacity on a number of titles published under his name, but we haven't done anything together for some years now. We met recently at a workshop run by the Heritage Lottery Fund at Voluntary Action LeicesterShire and thought it a good time to renew working relations. The last few titles we worked on were The 365 Tools to a Fulfilled Life, Short Quotable Bible Verses and Behind the Clouds. In case you haven't seen or heard of any of these books, faithful reader, you can check them out by clicking on the respective titles or by visiting the website of the publisher, Platinum Consolidated.

Tony invites me to attend the launch of his latest book (one in which I wasn't involved), Understanding the Person of the Holy Spirit in a few weeks at the New Covenant Church. That'll be nice.

Tony belongs to Leicester Pastors Forum and he offers to raise the topic of establishing working relations between this body and Leicester Council of Faiths at one of their future meetings. This would be a good thing, as the Council of Faiths has never managed to establish strong relations with African Heritage Churches in the city. If Tony can help rectify this, then he'll be doing us all a favour.
