The series of Business Briefings will take place in April and May at 11 locations across the UK, including Glasgow, York, Milton Keynes, Woking, Birmingham, Cardiff and Swindon. There will also be three sessions in London.

The roadshow is an annual event that aims to update employees on the business. However, this year it will also serve as an opportunity for the new CEO to meet employees. Each event will host between 200 and 600 Network Rail staff.

Rebecca Harmer, Network Rail's marketing services specialist, said: "These briefings are our main corporate event for employees, providing the opportunity for anyone from across the business, including frontline staff, to ask a question directly to the leaders of the organisation. This helps create conversation around the business in order to work together towards common goals."

In September, Network Rail awarded a £4.5m events tender to four agencies.
