Central Gov Strategy Forum 2014 Highlights

Introducing The Event

The Public Sector as a whole and Central Government departments in particular are facing some of the most challenging times to date in steering our country through what is arguably the worst recession since the 1930’s. Central Government Officers must deliver leadership and innovative new ideas to sustain their organisations - ranging from supporting economic recovery to ensuring Local and National service provisions are met whilst empowering public servants to deliver quality and distinction.

Setting priority based policies, assuring capacity for the frontline and ensuring everyone is supported through better infrastructure will be key. The Central Gov Strategy Forum brings together the finest thought leaders and peers from across Central Government to share ideas and help you improve key aspects of your organisation A little less formal than traditional conferences the Strategy Forum enables delegates to network and benchmark with peers, meet solution providers to help achieve their wider objectives and trade contact details for future collaborations.

The Forum promises to deliver a full circle of innovative and interactive workshops, presentations and networking opportunities all within a 2 day time efficient format in a private residential setting.
