Nicola Cameron, Assistant Director of Estates and Buildings (Estates Strategy) at the University of Glasgow, delivered at talk entitled 'Keeping a Cool Head for Stakeholder Management: The Case of University of Glasgow’s Refurbishment'. She spoke about the strong need to understand the governance of organisations.
