23rd-24th April – Solace in the South

‘Leading in the Age of a Perfect Storm - Politics, Pluralism and Popularism’   Aim: The theme of this year’s event is ‘The Perfect Storm’ Click here for the programme.

We live in an era where pluralism of political views are increasing, with a reduction in the power of the two main political parties, a significant increase in the number of Councils with no overall control, and with central Government focusing elsewhere, what happens in the event of a potential political vacuum?Allied to this is a rising tide of pressure groups seemingly opposed to everything, using social media, as a mechanism to forestall or influence decision making. In the context of reducing level of understanding of local government and local democracy and faith in our institutions – are we facing a  ‘perfect storm’?

24th September – Bristol Regional – Creating Purposeful Places

All Local Authorities want to make a difference to their place, to create prosperity and local pride. However, austerity and the consequent lack of resources is challenging this place leadership role. Alongside this the challenges of Brexit, the changing nature of town centres and the need to attract people and organisations to invest, live, work and play in your place has never been greater. The answer is to become an enabler and facilitator within the place, ‘to drive from the back seat’ but how do you empower, enthuse and engage stakeholders in the journey to create a ‘Purposeful Place’?

Date & Time: 24th September, 11:15-15:30

Venue: Lloyds, Bristol
