These short sessions, lasting approx. 1.5 hours each, will again be run by various members of the FCL Directorate Management Team. They are intended to provide an opportunity for everyone to come together in small informal groups.
In the sessions we plan to consider our staff survey results and think about our ‘public value proposition’ (more on this in the session!) Each session will open with a showing of the short Annual Report video and will conclude with an opportunity for Questions & Answers.
