From the CEO’s desk

At the start of year the staff at North Ryde and I initiated a clean-up and mini makeover of our work environment. I love a good spring-clean, throwing or donating what we don’t need. We cleared two storage rooms, turning one into my office and the other to an informal collaborative space with two hot desks for visitors.
