Question & Answer sessions

  • There will be an opportunity to ask the speaker questions at the end of each presentation


  • As this partnership session is close to both St Andrews Day and Christmas, we hope that everyone will wear their favourite Scottish top or Festive jumper - there might even be a prize. It may also be advisable to refresh your knowledge on these two celebrations.
  • There will be ample time allocated to networking at the end of the session, which we hope will allow new staff to introduce themselves and for all staff to celebrate ADR UK securing new funding.
