About this event

Diamonds in the Rough

Way back in 1958, some CIPFA South East members decided to hold a residential conference at Wantage Hall, University of Reading, to discuss topical issues affecting public finance. They hit on a winning formula, as what came to be known as 'Reading Summer School' has continued every year since then. This year, as the event celebrates its 60th 'birthday', we are returning to our original venue and to a two day/two night residential format. We promise you a relevant and stimulating event.

Confirmed speakers are:

  • Dame Margaret Hodge MP (after-dinner speaker)
  • Andrew Burns, incoming CIPFA President
  • Chris Naylor, CEO, London Borough of Barking and Dagenham
  • Sophie Walker, Leader, Women’s Equality Party
  • Aileen Murphie, Director, National Audit Office
  • More speakers will be added.
