About this event

The context

The conference will take place at a time when the wider constitutional developments associated with Brexit and new powers for Wales are still in development. The need to be financially resilient and seek new ways to design and deliver public services remains. 

The conference will focus on how Welsh public finance leaders can lead the way and will not only examine the challenges but identify new service solutions for a digital Wales. The powerful combination of Welsh leadership, news ways of working and embracing the digital future will unlock practical solutions and inspiration in equal measure.

The conference format will incorporate all of this and will include streamed choices for delegates. All delegates attending the 2017 CIPFA Wales Annual Conference can map their own personal conference journey.
