|My week has been almost completely focused on the Time for Change programme with a whole range of meetings across different strata of the University. I have a few more briefings to complete next week and then I can rest my voice and engage in other ways. I am uplifted by the feedback from so many yet again; sensible questions, considered contributions and great comments to enable further dialogue. I am always re-energised when I receive staff and student feedback as it reminds me what it is about the job I love and why UNE is worth fighting for.
Whilst Time for Change has taken over much of this week, the UNE21+ Conversation is still running and this week’s events were a critical staging post as the process of developing the new strategy moves from an open dialogue to focused discussions. The number of discrete participants is another marker for a community that is ready, willing and clearly able to contribute meaningfully into this complex conversation with so many challenging issues circling around us all.
