Update on Annual Conference – new speakers confirmed

We are delighted to confirm that political satirist Matt Forde will be the speaker at this year’s conference dinner. Matt has recently appeared on Have I Got News For You, Mock the Week, Question Time and The Royal Variety Performance 2015. He co-hosts talkSPORT’s Saturday football show The Warm-Up with Jon Richardson and hosts a monthly political show, The Political Party, at the St James’ Theatre which sells out every month.

We have also secured two excellent keynote speakers: Professor Tony Bovaird, who is going to start Day 2 with his thought-provoking views on Public Sector reforms, and Diana Melville, Governance Adviser for CIPFA who will open the first day of the conference.

A reminder that this year’s conference will be held at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel, Nottingham on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 November. The Early Bird offer runs until 31st August so make sure you book your place soon.
