Chief executive message

“Having our annual general and members’ meeting online is the safest way for us to share our updates, ambitions and progress throughout the year with you. Nothing quite beats face-to-face events, the two-way dialogue and the involvement and engagement in a room full of people. I hope you can in some part join with us online this year, and we hope to welcome you back to an in-person event in 2022″

Julie Gillon, Chief Executive
