When I started a year ago I was terrified talking to @BTP. It was like school again with them as the cool kids & me as the geek. But today i realised I’ve found myself way more. Grateful to teams who have welcomed me in; especially to @BTPRams for helping me work it all out.

Congratulations to Bill Matthews who has been reappointed as BTPA member for a further three years:

Fantastic to meet the new @BTPAuthority Chief Executive Hugh Ind and show him around @NetworkRailMAN .

Great opportunity to discuss some of the excellent @BTPGtrMcr work taking place. He also spoke to a number of front line staff.
