12th & 13th April 2016

Welcome to the Local Gov Strategy Forum

The public sector as a whole and local authorities in particular are going through radical change with huge spending cuts, radical shifts in power and scope of responsibilities. With much more control being exercised over costs and the continued drive to improve services local authority executives are now looking to one common focal point - delivering accessible, informative and innovative services to their citizens in a shrinking financial envelope.

The Local Gov Strategy Forum brings together the finest thought leaders and solution providers in a two-day business networking event which promises to inspire debate through our world class engagement platforms and ultimately broaden your expertise to add real value and insight back into the organisation you represent. The conference includes one-to-one business meetings, speed networking and group discussions. In addition, there will be think tanks, panel sessions and presentations focusing on hot topics. Through this, you are given the opportunity at the conference to meet with innovators assisting with Shared Services, Service Improvement, Channel Shift and more.
