In the first six months of 2019, Kevin Buckley, GGF Group Chief Executive Officer has visited the GGF Regions and Countries to listen to Members’ views and concerns and to provide updates on the progress of the GGF on all fronts.
Kevin’s recent visits to GGF Scotland, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland were of particular interest.
“From my visits to Members meetings across the UK and Ireland, I gleaned a lot of opinions and views of the Federation and our services. It was good to hear the positives but more interesting to hear of the areas where we can improve our services to Members.
We are exploring areas where we can raise the profile in both Ireland and Scotland and across the entire UK. These will include looking for more branding, PR and events opportunities as well as considering the political issues facing Members and how we can use our resource more effectively to influence policy or legislation.
Our technical and health and safety services are also vital across all geographic areas, but some of the issues are localised and though we have in some recent cases addressed specific local concerns, we will continue to focus our resources on the issues affecting Members regardless of their location.”
Kevin will be attending more Members meetings this year in the specialist technical groups and at regional and country meetings.
