Dr Sam Grogan, Pro Vice-Chancellor Student Experience, is beginning a new series of his popular Cafe Conversations. 

Sam will happily buy you a coffee in return for a chat about the big issues colleagues are talking about.

"I want to know what’s working, what’s not and what colleagues want to see from the University,” says Sam.

“I’ve had some great conversations over the last year and would love to hear from more colleagues and from students and share the latest news about the big things we’re all working on now.”

This year we’re allocating themes to each of sessions, including ‘Fit for the Future’ and ‘Our People Plan’ – it would be great to get your thoughts on these topics but if you do have another subject in mind please feel free to come along and discuss. 

Please note, from April our new Chief Operating Officer Huw Williams will be joining Sam for some of the sessions (indicated on the list below). If you have any new ideas or simply would like to meet Huw do come along to these.
