Well, we are just over 8 and a half weeks away from conference and our preparations are going well. My team has been working really hard with speakers, sponsors and PPMA Board members to start putting the finishing touches on our plans.
We are finalising the details of our speakers but I am delighted to share that they include:
Peter Cheese, Chief Executive Officer, CIPD
Jo Miller, President SOLACE and Chief Executive of Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council
Dr Catherine Mangan, Director of the Public Services Academy, Birmingham University
Rob Briner, Professor of Organizational Psychology, Queen Mary University of London and Scientific Director, Center for Evidence-Based Management
Darra Singh, Partner, Ernst & Young
Rob Whiteman, Chief Executive of CIPFA
Conference is a fantastic opportunity for us to meet, celebrate, share knowledge, network and discuss what matters most to us as a profession and our organisations. Every single one of our speakers has something important to say about public services and the issues we are facing. Their insights into workforce issues are a must hear for all of us.
We have already shared our conference agenda with you and we’re giving you even more information here about each topic we are going to be discussing. This will help you plan your days at conference, but also give you chance to do some thinking about what you want to get out of conference.
Over the next couple of months, we will keep you updated about our sponsors and speakers. I’ll also be talking about our nominated Charity, The Alzheimer’s Society.
Finally, please make sure you get your conference booking in. We can’t wait to see you in Bristol.
