Consultancy - letter from the Chair

February 2021

2021 – Looking Forward 

Following on from a year like no other, I’m sure like many of you, I for one, would like to put 2020 into the rear-view mirror and have a positive outlook for what 2021 has to bring. With the news of vaccines being rolled out across the world, we hope we can begin to see the landscape returning to some form of normality. 

At the end of 2020, I was handed the reigns of Chair to this prestigious group from Joanne Price, who has done a fantastic job spearheading the committee and providing support to our members. Joanne will not be going far, as she will remain on the committee in her role as joint Vice-Chair, assisting myself and the committee in our effort to provide consistency to our members as we emerge from a year of uncertainty. 

As the new Chair, my focus is ensuring we remain a member centric group. Listening to our members needs and wants, ensuring we strive to meet those needs and wants where we can. I’m very much of the opinion that the group should be member driven, with the committee there to facilitate and support our members.  

In 2021, as a result of the recent survey we asked you all to complete, we have set out a number of areas we would like to focus on as part of our events plan. With this in mind, we will be looking to reach out to our members to support on the delivery of this plan, sharing their own case studies, experiences and opportunities to network with others who have a common interest operating in similar sectors to themselves. 

Please keep an eye on our social media networks (Twitter and LinkedIn) and your email inboxes, as we will shortly be promoting the opportunity for our members to participate in our events plan, as well as promoting a number of other initiatives we’re working on to support you all. 

Our door will remain open as usual, if you did not have the chance to participate in the survey and have any suggestions, feedback or comments, then please reach out, using our email address: chair-consultancy@ioshnetworks.co.uk  

We look forward to serving you all in 2021.
