    A safe place for colleagues to have open and helpful discussions

    Socitm does a great job acting as the glue bringing together public sector colleagues who are often all facing the same challenges and opportunities in terms of innovation, transformation and modernisation. Socitm membership, especially their local and national events offer a safe place for colleagues to have open and helpful discussions and providing networking opportunities and forums to do this – to encourage cross-service support and also to introduce suppliers who have a proven track record in the market.

    Carol Williams, Walsall Council, Director of transformation and digital

    An unrivalled package of services and products

    Socitm Membership has been hugely valuable for me and my team – it provides essential insights across the sector, direct connections with Private Sector partners to help identify and assess solutions, delivers a really effective national and international network of colleagues and thought leaders to help discuss share and evaluate issues and opportunities and help shape policy. Membership also includes within it a highly respected Training and Development programme (from weekly insights/webinars to true mindset changing programmes) to help support both teams and individuals grow. I am particularly encouraged by the approach to Coaching and Mentoring, which supports our staff to develop to ‘be the best they can’, and help to become the leaders for tomorrow. All in all, an unrivalled package of services and products that represents fantastic value for money.

    Socitm has changed my life!

    It really has, for me and the people around me. Through the Top Talent course I realised I was listening to my own self-doubts and self-learnt untruths.

    Now I am doing things I would never have dreamed of a few years ago.

    Kurt Frary, Norfolk CC, Chief technical officer (CTO)

    Written for, and by practitioners

    As a researcher in digital trends and technology deployment across the public sector, I know how hard it is to find practical and targeted material that really resonates with the sector. Socitm is unique in providing such insight and analysis, valuable to suppliers, advisers and public sector leaders alike. Written for, and by practitioners, it is real, deep and independent thought leadership.

    Beneficial for the cyber security project I'm working on

    Trainers were very knowledgeable and great at answering questions. Simulation was very useful and listening to the discussion between others was beneficial for the cyber security project I’m working on.

    I found the cross-organisational exercising was really valuable

    Most of the day 1 material was already familiar to me (not a criticism), but I found the cross-organisational exercising was really valuable.

    Everyone's views were taken on board

    The exercise on day two highlighted something that could happen and encouraged us to share how we would respond if situation like this arose within our organisation. Everyone’s views were taken on board and that made everyone feel part of the process.

    I enjoyed how interactive it was

    I enjoyed how interactive it was – we were all called upon to give input which kept us engaged.

    Took me out of my narrow world

    It was great meeting other people from other organisations (especially in this pandemic) – took me out of my narrow world.
