The new President will build upon the significant work of his predecessor Robin Proctor FCILT, who helped implement a new strategy and shape a new vision for the Institute during his tenure. Robin said: “It has been an honour to be President of CILT(UK). I took the role at an important time for our profession and also for the Institute. I am proud of the job we have done to ensure we successfully raised awareness of and promoted CILT’s influence throughout the profession.
