In the last week of November, Cabinet Office hosted a series of events as part of ‘Public Bodies Week’ to launch their annual directory and strategy for public bodies. It was an opportunity for leaders of public bodies and government officials to discuss key challenges and opportunities facing the public sector.
The discussion topics were packed with important, cross-cutting challenges, such as Brexit, regional growth, diversity, digitalisation and commercial capability. Many of which chime with issues on the minds of members of ACE and our sister organisation, the Public Chairs' Forum, who contributed to panel sessions.
Of the wide-ranging topics in discussion, there were two key messages that stood out and they were the importance of effective transformation and collaboration. For further information of these discussions, please click on the button below to read our Civil Service World article.
