[NCUC-DISCUSS] Meeting with CEO.

Just with regard to ATRT3 - there's not a whole lot to report back on at
the moment in order to inform this conversation, since we're only a few
weeks in, are still wrapping up the scoping stage, so there hasn't been a
lot of progress in diving into the review itself. However, I would note
that implementation of previous reviews is something we're meant to be
looking at fairly closely, and I think that would be a good area to raise
with the CEO directly as well, as that ties nicely back to the original
issue as Tatiana framed it, especially around where recommendations don't
get implemented, or get dragged out for years, or otherwise meet forms of
institutional resistance.

Happy to chat further.
