I am really delighted to be appointed as South West regional chair. I have been involved with the CMI for a number of years and I am delighted that the CMI’s five key areas: Improving productivity through people; Building trust through better business cultures and governance; inclusive leadership – harnessing diversity and challenging group think; improving employability – better access and opportunities for young people; and The age of Apprenticeships – get in and go far in management, resonate with my own values. I am absolutely committed to improving management in the UK and also through management education and honoured to be part of the CMI dedicated to achieving this.
The South West Board look forward in the next newsletter to updating members on our plans and activities to engage with our members during the year. We, as a Board, look forward to meeting as many members as possible and to ensure that the South West is seen as an area where good management practice is promoted, supported and delivered.
