The Discussion group is held on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 10am at the same venue.
A programme of six months is compiled by the members, and the one who suggests a subject is the chair for that meeting. A short introduction is given and then the group take up the discussion.
We have very lively discussions on a great variety of subjects.

Pat Bishop led the February discussion on short termism. We identified examples of this practice in politics and investment finance and agreed about its drawbacks. This led to a detailed conversation on the way large organisations protect themselves when deficiencies are pointed out.
