During the last week of October 2022 the annual Strategic Operational Planning Meeting (SOPM) was hosted at FARR Head Office in Bellville (all Unit Managers) and attended by all 10 Project Coordinators from the Western-, Eastern-, Northern Cape, Freestate Provinces. The value of being able to meet in-person with colleagues from all over SA for the first time since the start of the Covid pandemic, was clearly highlighted during this very successful and productive time spent together as a Team.
