President's Message

“The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings.” - Kakuzo Kakura

These words are so profound and relevant to us all. Our members of our profession are all associated with change, risk and uncertainty and 2020 has been unrivalled in the modern era for large-scale disruption.

I was asked a few months ago, was it a bad year to be President? On the contrary, I feel honoured to lead our fantastic committee and represent our members through these times of change. I’m grateful for what our local region brings in terms of education, learning and development and I’m proud of your team to ensure this has thrived in a new digital-driven world.

This year we have delivered a record numbers of events on-line, with record numbers of attendees and received record high feedback ratings.

We all strive for that little bit of normality and look forward with hope and optimism to a mixture of face-to-face and technology-led events in 2021.

There have never been truer words said than to wish all of you and yours health and happiness, for the festive break and the New Year.
