CPO Talking Heads - February

Land Assembly Strategies: The Temporary v Permanent Dilemma

The principle behind talking heads is a simple one; how to stay abreast of key issues in the industry. 10 months ago we could meet for lunch, go to events; but COVID stopped all this. A solution is now at hand with a new style event and format. Join the lunchtime discussion 'CPO - Talking Heads'

Please note there are no slides accompanying this recording.
