Caledonian TM meets on campus at Glasgow Caledonian University – although we are a community club. We receive favourable room rates (free actually) and are therefore keen to support the GCU Common Good strategy. We were invited to deliver a workshop to students in February 2016 to help them with their presentation skills – what a great opportunity for our members!
