2014 is well and truly in full swing and with any luck there is a lovely British summer around the corner. We’ve just returned from Leeds for the annual Presidents and Deputies weekend. UK chamber teams meet and discuss current issues facing the JCI UK organisation, make decisions on behalf of the members and get updates from each area of opportunity. The weekend was also full of networking, training and lots of caffeine Sunday morning after the Saturday night social event.
Just last week, our very own Natasha Buivids and Michelle Bustos made a special appearance on the 93.7 ExpressFM Business Express show talking all things JCI and a few other topics that snuck their way into the show. They also got to pick most of the songs on the show so to listen back, click here.
