President's Message

As I approach the end of my Presidential year, I thought that I would reflect on a bizarre and unprecedented last 12 months.

When I accepted the Deputy President’s role in April 2019, none of us had any idea that, by the end of my predecessor, Mark Hands’, year, our offices would be closed, all social events and networking cancelled, along with Mark’s Annual Dinner in March 2020.

We also had no idea that the COVID-19 pandemic would mean that these restrictions would continue throughout my Presidential year.

Nevertheless, we have adapted well to a virtual environment and have continued to deliver exceptional CPD events to our 5,000+ members. These have reached a wide audience of CII members and are often over-subscribed. We have been acknowledged by the CII as the leading local institute in this regard.
