Basically, the core of the programme is the monthly meeting based round a programme, decided at the beginning of the year and voted on by all the members, deleting less popular topics and inserting more popular ones. Inevitably, unexpected events happen, which require discussion and one, or two, of the twelve topics have to be changed. Our meetings are unique in that there is more dialogue throughout the session, which is also longer and in more depth than found in chambers or other meetings. This allows a sustained discussion to be maintained.
Today managers are busier than ever and have to travel more. So where once half our members attended the main session, today about one third attend. After the session, a soft copy is prepared with notes on issues discussed and new relevant material. Some members use parts of our briefing material to report to head office, others ask us to update old slides or assist in preparing briefings with new material.
