I am meeting Viv Sugar first thing. She is the dynamic Chair for the new Welsh Consumer Council – and someone that all staff in Cardiff will probably know or have heard of.
Then, we have our second Board meeting today. They are looking at some of the strategic questions for the new organisation (like “what is the right balance between speaking for consumers and enabling consumers to speak for themselves?”), and other issues like how to handle vulnerable complaints and the extent to which we raise additional funding for other work, particularly in public services.
There is a team behind the Board team – and, while it is not complete, here is the array of beautiful people you have working on transition at present with me.
