|As another week comes to a close, I am stunned to note that July has been ticked off on the calendar and we are counting down the days to the summer solstice.
I would like to say that my week has been the usual rich complex mix of meetings. My reflection will be that I spent it on Zoom meetings talking to different groups about the recently published Time for Change plan – including faculties and groups of various kinds. More of the same next week. I have also been buried in emails from staff and stakeholders all expressing their views; the majority have offered support and provided functional and useful advice. Thank you.
Meeting with community leaders have also ramped up as I share the Time for Change plans. I can only reflect on the quality of their support and willingness to develop new conversations around supporting UNE in the context of this University being an anchor business within the region.
I did not have Princess Ann offering advice about better Zoom skills but was supported by the brilliant team from IT who helped keep me connected and provided copies of all the questions posted on various sites I interact with.
