About this event

The biggest issues facing the North East today are:

  • how to harness the power of digital for efficiency and better management of demand for public services
  • how to transform an educational establishment with financial deficits and requiring improvement ratings to being the Times Educational Supplement 2017 College of the year
  • how to ensure sustainably funded health services for an ageing and diverse population
  • how to fill the gap in economic growth without the support of European regional development funding.

This unique one-day conference draws on the rich experience and perspectives of prestigious speakers from a range of sectors and professions each with a shared passion for making a difference to local economies and people. It promises to be our best and most thought provoking conference yet.
