I will be re-launching the Institute of Directors (IoD) People Forum at the recently opened Bench Bar @ the wonderful University of Surrey Sports Park, Guildford Surrey, on Friday 14th May between 07:25 and 08:45.

The meeting has 2.5 purposes:  1) Mapping out what we, as forum members, want from the Forum 2) Networking with great people, sharing ideas and energy … and 2.5 exploring the fantastic www.surreysportspark.co.uk

I know that next Friday might not be convenient for everyone but it would be good to see as many people there as possible.

 The cost is £10.00 (+VAT) for members and their guests and £20.00 (+VAT) for non-members. 

The IoD West Surrey People Forum is an interactive and focused discussion group for Directors who have direct employee responsibility, HR and Learning & Development Practitioners, Employment Lawyers and anyone else who is responsible for the ‘people side’ of the business. The bi-monthly meetings are intended to be informal and practical. All meetings are collaborative, knowledge sharing, and good fun, even though it is early in the morning!

I cannot process bookings from my office but you can book your place by going to the IoD website at www.iod.com/westsurrey/events. If you have any problems with your booking, please email Claire Fisher at eventbookings.south@iod.net or call her on 02380 266548.

In order to complete the necessary final arrangements I would like to request that all bookings are made by close of business on Tuesday 10th March, and would be grateful if payment could be received in advance of the event.

If you have any questions about the event please do not hesitate to contact me directly and I will be happy to help. I hope to see you on the 14th.
