Online events & support calls

In line with so many others, we have made the decision to postpone all in person events until Summer 2020.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely, pushing back this date as necessary, and once the situation stabilises we hope to reintroduce postponed events back into the programme. The health and safety of our friends and delegates is our number one concern so we feel it is the right thing to do.

 

In the meantime, we are offering three online events/check-ins/support calls per week, and an additional Chairs & Vice Chairs specific support call (see here for information on this).

 

The general framework for these online events & support calls is as follows: 

CEO Check-Ins, Mondays, 3pm

Thematic Areas & Support, Wednesdays, 3pm

Chairs & Vice Chairs Check-Ins, Thursdays, 3pm

Leader Learnings, Friday, 10am

These Check-In's are supported by Aberdeen Standard Capital, and will take place on Mondays at 3pm through the following Zoom link:
