July 23rd saw the ‘soft launch’ of ‘CIPD London’, a collaboration of 7 London CIPD branches coming together for the first time, with the formal launched at the CIPD September conference.
The event was an opportunity for committee members from the 7 branches to network and share ideas on what will make the CIPD London partnership a success, what our priorities should be over the next year and what special interest groups could or should be London wide or local. With a little lubrication from a glass of wine you can imagine that the ideas flowed and there is further work to be done in honing these idease over the coming months
Where is this taking us? Ultimately this is about having a greater impact through and with our various members, centres, policymakers, SMEs, etc. How? By having a more joined up approach, better use of resources and investments, greater quality, consistency and continuity of efforts and alignment and support from Wimbledon, and with each other.
Watch this space to see how things progress.
