04.03.2021Persistence pays off for new Future Focus Group participants
The 17 participants in the Future Focus Group (FFG) 2021-2022 Program have shown great flexibility and persistence to complete induction activities – despite the recent snap lockdown in Victoria cutting the planned Induction Event at Marriott Melbourne in half. They juggled their work and other commitments to regather on short notice at the Marriott last Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning for more time together, then had a valued virtual Alumni Panel session last night with Kellie Badge of Forensic Solutions Litigation Support and Nicholas McVey of Yarra Trams. Thanks to the team at Marriott Melbourne for their outstanding support of the ‘two stage’ approach to induction activities that was ultimately required.
Three FFG Project Teams were announced early in the induction activities and each team now has 15 months to identify, pitch for and then work on its FFG Project. The Committee put 12 potential FFG Projects to the participants, all focused on a tangible contribution to Melbourne’s Road to Recovery. Thanks to the focus and energy of Project Team members, one Project Team has already identified its proposed FFG Project and the other two Project Teams have shortlisted two options, which is an excellent effort. Project Team members will now be developing their concepts further and zeroing in on a proposed FFG Project that will be pitched to a Project Review Panel at the FFG Workshop on Tuesday 27 April. Look out for details of these FFG Projects as they take more shape … as there may well be requests for input or expertise where you can play a valued role.
