Meet the Deputy Chief Virtual Roadshows
Thu, 18 Jun 2020

Deputy chief executive and director of planning and economic regeneration, Alan Menzies, will be hosting two virtual roadshow events via Microsoft Teams next week, with staff from across the council invited to join in, hear the latest on the council's response to the coronavirus and ask any questions they may have.

The events will take place on Tuesday, 23 June, at 12.30pm, and on Wednesday, 24 June, at 3.30pm, with each being around an hour long.

There are two ways to ask a question at the event. Either in real-time via the Q&A panel on the right hand side of the screen or live and in person via your webcam.

For those who wish to just listen or ask questions via the Q&A panel, all you have to do is click on the event link and join.

If you would like to ask a question live and in person, please email pressoffice@eastriding.gov.uk to let us know which event you would like to ask the question at. The press office can then make arrangements in advance for you to be invited into the event.

Please note you will be asking your question live so would be on camera (if you have one) and will need a microphone at minimum.

Please title emails as 'Meet the Deputy Chief Virtual Roadshow Question'.

"Following the success of the events in May with the chief executive, Caroline Lacey, many members of staff asked if these could become regular sessions and we are happy to put these on to ensure you are all kept up-to-date and informed," said Alan.

 "We're keen for as many staff as possible to be involved, from frontline workers to those working from home. You don't need to register to take part as we can accommodate up to 10,000 participants."

You don't need to use a council device to take part in these events, you can use any device with internet access, whether a personal laptop, PC or smartphone.

To access the events, please click on the links below shortly before the scheduled start time and follow any instructions.

You do not need a Microsoft Teams account to access the events, as they will launch through your internet browser.

If you wish to ask a question in person, the press office will arrange to invite you into the event, directly.

Alan will aim to answer as many questions as possible during the events, but any that don't get asked - due to time constraints - will be noted and responses provided through articles in The Grapevine or on the intranet. Where possible they can also be responded to directly with the member of staff via email.

 If you think of a question after the event that you would like to ask Alan, you can complete the simple form on the vision section of the intranet at https://insight.eastriding.gov.uk/vision/ and note it for Alan's attention.

You can also send your comments/questions via email to Suggestionbox@eastriding.gov.uk  (emails can be sent from your personal email account if you don't have a council email address)

Or send a free text starting TEXTTHECHIEF followed by a space, and then your message to Alan, to 80800.
