B830 – EBI – Update

February 6, 2011

While we covered several areas around Policy, staffing, the buildings (partly as construction of the premises is complete).

Add to this the high level of nervousness I felt facilitating a session with people who are CEOs, Directors and Senior management in their own respective organisations who have a wealth of experience around doing this themselves…
