  • Local Authorities and the self-financing model: how are they making it work, what does this mean for culture?
  • Improving our business models
  • Balancing risk with resilience: how should organisations and Boards work together to think strategically about the future?


The conference also provides the opportunity to network and learn from colleagues across the UK.
