We had another great year in 2014/15 and have set ourselves ambitious targets for 2015/16 to stay on track for our 2020 goals. Testament to this is the recruitment of our first ever dedicated head of marketing communications, to ensure the continuation of our aggressive marketing, thought leadership and business development strategy.
