Rebecca Johnson was quoted as saying "Money is the opposite of the weather. Nobody talks about it, but everybody does something about it." My presentation at these half-day seminars will look at the Met Office's change from a vote funded organisation to a Trading Fund. In essence we now have to make a return on capital employed (ROCE) or to put it another way, a profit. I will share what happened and present some of the lessons learned from the process and the tensions which arose, some of which are still in evidence today, more than 15 years later.
