Hayley is a Ghost

Weirder and weirder

Posted on: August 3, 2011

It has been brought to my attention recently that one of the organisers of the ‘Weird conferences’ that are held in Wiltshire, is claiming to have sacked me from being involved in the conference.

I was a volunteer for ‘Weird ’09’ and ‘Weird ’10’ and also spoke at the first of these events too. I quit as a volunteer and crew member after the Weird ’10 conference because of the openly snide way in which one of the organisers spoke to speakers,and about merchants (who also happened to be my friends). This nasty attitude spilled over onto facebook in the private group on there for crew members. It’s when this happened that I decided enough was enough and left the crew.

I’m glad I did but I’m dismayed to find that one of the organisers is now telling people I am “unhinged” and that she sacked me. This is a lie. There, clarification made 🙂

I too was a crew member of Weird Events during the time that Hayley discusses. I was the co-host of the largely forgotten Clear Air Turbulence podcast along with one of the main organisers of the conference, and I can categorically confirm that Hayley was not sacked in any sense of the word. In fact, because of the aforementioned snide remarks made about speakers, and the way that this certain organizer dealt with the crew (including setting people up to seem as if they were liars), a number of the original crew left in protest, including myself. Though Hayley and I don’t see eye to eye, I felt as if I must confirm what Hayley is saying if only to remark, albeit briefly, on what a complete shambles Weird Events is behind the scenes.

Hayley, Back to you. I apologise for hijacking the blog. =)

I can also confirm that Hayley was not sacked, and in fact at least two members of the volunteer team walked out after the poor treatment of speakers and merchants. I was one of those speakers who was treated very badly and would NEVER work for these particular conference organisers again.
