Thank you to everyone who took part in our Let’s Talk meeting yesterday.

The Arts Lecture Theatre was full to capacity and 290 people tuned in to watch the event online.

If you were unable to join us, you can now watch a recording of the meeting on the Let’s Talk webpage.

Please take a minute to give us your feedback on the event so our future meetings can be developed and improved further.

Dame Glynis introduced the main presentations, which saw Professor Jonathan Knight, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research) talk about the new project to develop our doctoral provision. This was followed by Diane Aderyn, Director of Finance & Commercial Services, who gave a detailed overview of the new developments on Campus and in the City that will significantly increase the space available on campus.

There will be more detail on both these areas published online in the coming days.

There were plenty of follow up questions from the room on a range of subjects from the challenges for professional postgraduates to the impact of Brexit.

This meant that there wasn’t time to cover your questions submitted in advance this time, but if you sent one in, you will receive a response soon and the Q&As will be posted online shortly.

Many colleagues stayed for refreshments after the meeting and took the opportunity to talk with senior managers and view the display of plans for Manvers Street and the Milner Centre.

We will be holding another Let’s Talk meeting in the autumn and we look forward to seeing you there.
