Partnering with Political Leaders: Creating a win-win relationship.
On Wednesday 21st February 2024, SWiFT will hold an executive event at the Auditorium, ARUP.
Navigating politics and engaging political leaders is one of the most important parts of developing your career as well as shaping the future of the rail industry.
