Discussion forums - ask questions and share best practice
Save money with cost saving initiatives and introductions to industry specialists
Ian Sackree FCCA, Chief Operating Officer at Protocol says,
"As qualified accountancy finance professionals, you and I share several things in common. We care passionately about the FE sector and making our colleges and organisations work sustainably and effectively – we take our profession and the way we do business seriously, we do things properly!
I was a senior leader at a large GFE college for nearly 10 years. During this period, just like you I was part of a team that delivered education educational excellence, expanded, merged , cut back, re-organised and generally dealt with change on a rolling basis. I loved working in FE, and still do – I get a buzz every time I visit one of your colleges but if I had to identify one thing that I didn’t do enough of it was networking with like-minded people.
This new club is for you to come together to shape issues, share advice, refresh old skills and of course to learn new ones. Powered by Protocol, this network will remain current, relevant and of interest to you. There is no cost to you ( other than your time) and like any network you will get out what you put in
I look forward to planning and delivering a wide variety of events where we can meet and continue to lead this fantastic sector."
