About Corporate Culture Roundtables
At our Roundtable sessions we bring together a small number of people (senior professionals and executives), who would welcome an open discussion on the subject matter, based on their insight and knowledge. Refreshments are provided prior to an early evening start (5:30pm), where our host will share their views and experience before opening up the discussion to the wider group.
This session has now passed. To register your interest in our next Roundtable please contact Elaine Smith.
