A review of the Associate Member programme
July’s second presenter was acumen7’s first Associate Member, Dr Rosie Hughes. Rosie, an Associate Director at AECOM, reflected on the benefits she has gained from the network in terms of industry knowledge, and both horizontal and vertical learning, with the peer-to-peer learning being the most enriching aspect of the experience. Rosie also commented on the valuable support from her mentor, Richard Ogden, as well as network’s participatory approach and selfless support. acumen7’s Chair, Kim Vernau, echoed the thoughts of the members by saying that Rosie’s involvement has been a beneficial and insightful learning experience for the network as well.
