25 November Somerset Condensery Gallery Advisory Committee Meeting
26 November Team Somerset Breakfast – SRC – Councillors and all staff
I offer my congratulations to Mr Andrew Johnson (CEO Designate) for initiating the Somerset Team building exercise. This initiative provided all staff with a holistic understanding on the structure of their council, and the opportunity to meet and network with Councillors and fellow staff members. Acknowledging the positive feedback offered, it may be prudent to hold this type of team building exercise in the future when and as appropriate and practical. I would be so bold to suggest that a similar Councillor team building initiative could be organised post 2020 Local Government election
