Getting to know you was the theme for our latest ‘meet the board’ session, with staff and board members getting together to ask each other questions on a whole host of topics.
The event was held in a speed networking format, with people changing tables every ten minutes. All nine board members attended the lunchtime session, plus two of our Stakeholder Senate members and ten of our staff.
Staff came away with an increased awareness of what the board does and board members learnt first-hand about the different roles within the organisation. The event also raised awareness of the demands on each other and the projects currently being carried out within the organisation.
Two of our newly appointed staff members Marek Krokowski and Marika Ziolkowska attended.
Marek Krokowski said: “This was a very useful way to meet the board members and to find out how they got onto the board, what they did to get there and to get some information on their backgrounds”.
