Leading towards recovery will be the key theme of this year’s programme, which is currently under development. We are working to make it hugely topical and relevant to assist senior officers in these uncertain times.

Each session is 1 hour in duration and consists of two parts both live. The first 30 minutes of panel discussion will also be recorded and available on demand afterwards. For the second 30 minutes, recording will be turned off and the live Q&A will be under the Chatham House Rule.

We will facilitate frank and open discussion on the lessons learnt from the pandemic and the significant issues now facing us including:

  • Overcoming our post-pandemic challenges
  • Withstanding financial pressure
  • Reviving local economies
  • Devolution and structure: the battle to secure new powers
  • Leadership to create a fair society
