In 2018, the APG are celebrating 50 years of Planning.
To coincide with this anniversary The APG is collaborating with Russell Davies on a series of podcasts and will be releasing one a month for the whole year.
Each podcast features Russell in conversation with a planner who has done interesting things.
The idea is to get them telling some more unusual stories; the stories that don’t get captured in case studies and awards entries. In each one Russell asks a series of questions:
1. What's A Piece of Work with A Personal Connection for You?
2. What's A Piece of Work with An Interesting Backstory?
3. What's an A Piece of Work You Think Deserves More Attention?
4. What's the Piece of Work of Which You're Proudest?
