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.

It’s my first day at Arts Council England and I would like to use the first of my regular blogs to introduce myself.
