We welcome any input and feedback from you all. You will see that again we have pushed the boundaries with our questions and calculations. Much of our work is groundbreaking/ being done for the first time and will only improve as we do more of this year on year.
It was with a heavy heart that I made the difficult decision to cancel our launch event due to take place in Cardiff today due to COVID. The levels in the UK made it, in our minds, untenable to have our community meet together in large numbers indoors at present.
Instead, we would like to invite you all to join us at a digital event on 20 July from 4.30-6.30pm BST. This will be a digital drinks with Fireside Chat, Q&A and a quiz during which we will discuss the report findings and content.
All are welcome, sign up here (drinks can only be sent to the UK) https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/379579762287
