All EM IEP hosted events/training sessions are FREE (except where indicated) to local authority and fire & rescue service staff.
Location: Leeds Hilton Hotel
Event date: 22 Mar 2011
Organised by: Local Government Group
Councils are facing up to the challenge of adjusting to the new era of financial restraint. Difficult decisions are being made to balance community needs and expectations and manage competing demands. The pressure is on to find new ways of doing things.
The Government has stripped away the old performance regime of inspection and assessment and is looking to councils to be more accountable locally and to take responsibility for their own performance. The morning session will explore some of the practical implications of the transparency agenda and the tools the LG Group is making available - free of charge - to help member councils manage their own performance.
During the afternoon, we will hear about the innovation work that NESTA and Local Government Improvement & Development are leading on, as well as interactive and informative workshops on community budgets, productivity opportunities and Big Society.
This is your opportunity to get to grips with the implications and opportunities of:
- sector self-regulation
- localism and Big Society
- new ways of reshaping local public services
- new productivity opportunities
- Cllr David Parsons CBE, Deputy Chairman, Local Government Group and Chairman, LG Group Improvement Programme Board
- Daniel Oppenheimer, Interim Chief Executive, NESTA
- Emer Coleman, Director of Digital Projects, London Councils
