The people for you...Virtual Events

French Duncan | 31 August 2021

As we all continue to face unique challenges during 2021, here at French Duncan we decided to piece together a short series of online events for our clients, contacts and friends which might just help us all through these times. 

Our previous events:

Journey to Tokyo 2020 - The people for you...Steph Davis, Olympic athlete

On 7th September we were lucky enough to have a talk and Q&A with Scottish athlete Steph Davis, who finished as the top Brit in the women's marathon at this year's Olympic Games in Tokyo. Steph's story is truly inspirational - having only run her first marathon in 2018 she went on to win the British trials at Kew Gardens earlier this year with a new personal best, cementing her place at the delayed Tokyo 2020 event.

Building upon our previous event where Graeme Codrington spoke about the future of work, on Wednesday 23rd June we welcomed Rory Gray of UiPath and Andy Guy of our own sister company FD Intelligence who spoke about how robots are going to transform the workplace, and how they have already been deployed by FD Intelligence in businesses of all shapes and sizes.
