Leadership in Local Government

NLGN Fringe Event LGA 2017

Birmingham City Centre

The role of local government is evolving. It now plays a more important role in peoples’ lives than ever before. Naturally, this has increased the demands on the individuals leading these evolving councils. Increasingly complex service and resource challenges require creativity, resilience, and deeper workforce insight. More active collaboration across public services requires “whole place” influence beyond organisational boundaries.

This private dinner will bring together prominent figures in local government to discuss how we can overcome these barriers to success. We will explore several questions including:

  • What new and existing challenges can be solved by strategic leadership?
  • Do member-officer relations need to adapt to confront these barriers?
  • How can shared leadership and accountability co-exist?
We will also hear contributions from key stakeholders including:

Martin Reeves, Chief Executive, West Midlands Combined Authority and Coventry City Council
Jo Negrini, Chief Executive, London Borough of Croydon

This private dinner is a fringe event of the LGA Conference 2017 in Birmingham city centre and provides an excellent opportunity for networking with peers.

This event is invitation-only and places are limited. You do not have to be a delegate at the LGA Conference to attend. Please contact rsvp@nlgn.org.uk to request a space.
