I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the beautiful summer weather. Thank you to everyone that attended last Wednesday’s dinner with Dame Sharon White. A number of members noted the personal openness, and great insights that Sharon shared on just what it’s like to run the singular organisation that is The John Lewis Partnership. She noted just how much she enjoyed the evening. A huge thank you to Luke Gbedemah for being such an excellent moderator and also to Jane Stiller for the fantastic and impassioned vote of thanks.
I cannot quite believe that we are approaching the final dinner of the season and I am thrilled that we are ending with a speaker that has a similar insight into leading transformation in an organisation that everybody has a connection to and has strongly held opinions, The Director General of the BBC, Tim Davie.
I very much look forward to seeing you all there on July 5th and in the meantime if you’re looking for extra ways to enjoy the beautiful sunny weather a reminder that Suki Steps, The Macmillan Cancer fundraiser in support of our wonderful and long-standing member, Suki Thompson, is on July 17 – details in the email from Charlotte last week.
Book the event with Tim Davie on the 5th July here
My very best to you all.
