NLGN Annual Conference 2018: Changemakers Assemble

kindly supported by:


This year, NLGN proudly launched its changemaking vision for local government. On 22nd February 2018, we will explore it with you.

At a time of intense financial pressures and when central government’s mind is on other things, many are asking themselves where local government goes next. NLGN’s new vision reflects this approach; we are calling for councils to embrace a bold ‘changemaking’ approach focused on the core values of creativity, collaboration and self-determination.

This year’s annual conference will move away from traditional panels, and spark discussion on the priorities facing the council of today. In so doing, we hope you will learn from one another, sharing your expertise in a creative and open environment.

We are delighted to announce our keynote speakers:

Rt Hon Nicky Morgan
Chair, Treasury Select Committee
Sir Richard Leese CBE
Leader, Manchester City Council
Deborah Cadman OBE
Chief Executive, West Midlands Combined Authority

Last year saw over 150 Chief Executives, Directors, Leaders, policy makers, and senior executives from the public sector join us for a day of debate, exchange and networking.

Tickets for the conference cost £150 for the public and not-for-profit sector and £300 for private sector organisations.
