'Future Focus - the best way forward?' Panel Discussion
Cranfield Trust are delighted to bring together, into one virtual space, a group of experts that will introduce key topics for scenario planning as we continue on an uncertain path of service recovery. Each of our panellists will talk for 10 minutes providing a brief overview of some key routes to consider after which we will open the floor for Q&A.
We hope all delegates will leave having had an opportunity to reflect and with some ideas and options for potential next steps for their organisations whether that be greater collaboration with others through to merging or insolvency.
