President’s Week 2020

Virtual event

Reset, reform and recover.

The response of local government to the Covid-19 pandemic is nothing short of astonishing.

Across the UK, authorities are quickly adapting to new ways of working to ensure the continuation of vital services, as well as maintaining and even increasing productivity for the wider community.

What will the future look like? Can these breakthroughs be sustained?

These are just two of the big issues we will cover throughout President’s Week. Hosted virtually through a series of webinars, the week will feature key speakers at the centre of delivering the ‘new normal’.

So, don’t miss out on what promises to be a fascinating week of discussion and debate, and learnings that can drive your future actions.
