The context for this year’s conference could be summed up in one word – uncertainty. We don’t have certainty on long-term funding, we don’t have certainty on the outcome of Brexit (at the time of writing) and we don’t have the certainty of political decision-making at our assembly and executive. 

As public finance professionals know, uncertainty can be an opportunity to set a new path. That path must lead to better outcomes for our citizens and that must be brought about with fewer resources and a greater need to collaborate and find innovative solutions to service delivery. We need to depart from the existing ways of doing things and focus our attention and resources on clear measures of outcome delivery across government and the wider public sector. 

Event format

With leading figures and expert speakers the conference will explore the key issues underpinning that departure ranging from outcomes planning to the future workforce and the sustainability of our service delivery.   

With plenaries and choice stream workshops the conference has been designed to ensure that all delegates can map their own personal conference journey. If you recognise the need to change thinking in the face of uncertainty, we hope you will enjoy the conference – and the opportunity to network with a wide range of colleagues involved in public services.

Speakers and programme  

Leading figures and expert speakers from across the public services, business, academia, think tanks, and beyond.  See the programme page.
