Virtual mentoring pilot sessions coming soon!

We will shortly be releasing a workshop/briefing video on developing our regional speed mentoring events in 2021, initially as virtual sessions and then live events when COVID restriction relaxation permits. You could have an opportunity to be involved in these pilots and information about that will be included in the video.

All of our events are open door access to non-CIPFA colleagues working to support the delivery of public services across our region.

If you have any questions about our events, please contact John Barker, Regional Secretary:
