Story of success

This morning was the ninth workshop in the Whitehall and Industry Group’s Innovation in Delivery series, and the topic of discussion was ‘The Ingredients of Effective Commissioning’.

I first read ‘Who Moved My Cheese’ when I was 15 and struggling to cope with managerial changes at the restaurant I waitressed at part-time, and have been known to quote the Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People […]

WE ARE YOUNG, WE ARE FREE…
