On the 24th January, in the third of our series of thought leadership breakfasts with PublicPolicyProjects, and kindly sponsored by Winckworth Sherwood, we will be hosting a breakfast debate with Sir Howard Bernstein, former Chief Executive of Manchester City Council and Baroness Jane Scott OBE, Leader of Wiltshire Council.
24th January 2018
7.45am – 9.30am – a hot breakfast will be served
Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, St. James’s, London SW1Y 5AG
With Sir Howard’s experience of leadership as a Chief Executive of a northern Council that witnessed trauma in the 90s and subsequent renewal and Baroness Scott’s experience in bringing five councils together into one unitary authority which, without a Chief Executive, she has led through change, this promises to be a lively event.
Their thoughts on the successes, frustrations and future of local government will help us all to come together and reimagine the delivery of our public services in an alternative interactive forum. Join us and join the debate about how best to see through transformative change and the private sector can work with the public sector to secure real and lasting positive differences to communities up and down the country.
The discussion will be chaired by the Rt Hon. Stephen Dorrell, Chairman of Public Policy Projects. This is the third breakfast in our partnership series, which has already seen us host Duncan Selbie of Public Health England and Councillor Rodwell as well as Sir Andrew Dilnot, British Economist and Chair of the Dilnot Commission into Funding of Care & Support.
