As promised in my previous blog post, dated 7 March 2012, I will spend time expanding on Surrey’s progress starting by explaining the creation of a new team to lead this project.
Unfortunately due to Nayla’s long-term sickness, the team took the decision to regroup and progress with the project on her behalf. Since Nayla’s return back to work, in February 2012, Nayla has taken the decision to leave the project team.
The new core project team has consisted of our Communications Officer, Steve Tyler, our Alumni Relations Manger, Trudy Monk , our Alumni Relations Officer for Faculty of Business, Economics & Law , Lucy Evans and myself still as Project Officer.
Despite Nayla’s sickness the team has been taking the project forward and has made good progress.
There are numerous learnings we will be able to share with the sector as a result of our testing to date and we are very excited about the live launch of our Forever Surrey Live programme on the 16 March 2012.
As discussed with the group back in November, the programme will climax with at least one talk being streamed live from our inaugural alumni day on the 14 July.
Nayla wanted me to say a big thank you for the support you have all provided to date and both Nayla and myself look forward to hearing about the successes of all projects in due course.
