I have noticed that some FT staff tend to approach members of my team to ask questions, or share information, rather than come directly to me as the lead. This has resulted in confusion in some situations that could quite easily have been avoided.
More often than not, I have a BSL interpreter with me in the office, so feel free to come over and talk to me any time, just as you would with any other staff (and you can always drop by for a social chat too!)
I know communicating via an interpreter might take a bit of getting used to for some of you, but I really appreciate your efforts to keep me in the loop.
If I’m not in the office, you can also get hold of me on Slack or email.
