March President's Message

Fri 9 Mar. 2018

Dear Members… Time is such a strange thing - January this year seemed to last forever; but February has zipped by in a flash! For the last few days, the ‘Beast from the East’ has certainly caused a lot of disruption, and I hope you and your families have been coping without any major issues. I work from home, so for me it has just been a case of a few cancelled meetings (and a considerably bigger heating bill). Being effectively snowed in does mean, however, that I have managed to get a few things ticked off my ‘to do’ list, not least, composing this penultimate message to you. Yes - penultimate; I can’t quite believe I am nearly at the end of my presidential year, but it’s true. There are just two months left before I hand over to my very capable deputy, Richard Brame. Richard is a Senior Director at Willis Towers Watson - and if you are coming to our annual dinner, that will be your first chance to hear from him about his plans for the year ahead.

January President's Message

Fri 26 Jan. 2018

Dear Members… I don’t know about you but as 2018 kicked off, I nearly got beaten by the New Year blues. January swooped in, putting an end to the festivities, dousing out the lights and vacuuming up all the glitter, regimenting the calendar, taking away precious time with family and friends and replacing it with what then felt like mundane duties of just ‘keeping things going’. And then, as reality hit, I started worrying about all of the things I wanted to achieve during my presidential year, and whether I would be able to finalise the plans I’d started, and make sure they were successful. But luckily, that didn’t last long. Thanks to fantastic support and hard work from my fellow council members, it soon became clear that we are still very much on track, and I am extremely excited for the next few months and beyond. I picked myself up, shook myself off and made myself get on. I have loads to look forward to throughout the year and after all, the festive period – with all its blissful, exhilarating escapism - will happen all over again in about 48 weeks’ time!

Dear Member - I can definitely feel the festive season in the air now; I love this time of year, with its frosty mornings, the need for scarves and mittens, the first twinkling of fairy lights in the dark evenings, shop windows aglow with red and gold, and a general sense of pleasant anticipation....
