It’s seven days since I began my new job at Arts Council England, so I thought that I would take the opportunity to share some thoughts and experiences from my first week as Chief Executive. 

I’m very much in learning mode at the moment. As well as meeting the teams based in each of our nine offices around the country, I also wanted to ensure that I took the opportunity to meet some of the people who run the broad range of arts and cultural organisations that are supported by Arts Council England.
