I then Subdivide the contexts into more relevant subcontexts, e.g. in office I have a list of the offices I work from and then for the main office, further subcontexts of Research, Computer, Phone.
For people, I have my key staff and contacts listed so I can pick things up with them when I phone them, they phone me or I am sat with them.
Ideally (and I know this is 'anti' GTD) I would list two or more contexts against a tasks (e.g. Office Phone, Office that person works in, Mobile, [Person's name], Priorities) therefore if I'm in any of those contexts it would show up.
I tend to flick between Contexts and Due dates to ensure things are picked up.
