This is an event that will explore the ‘art of the possible’ in the transformation of local public services.
It’s a unique event with: senior public service commissioners, leaders of commercial social enterprises, and social investors coming together to share perspectives and to think in new ways about local solutions.

E3M Alchemy Challenge
The conference will be highly participative. Delegates will be given a challenge to work on at their table, as part of a mixed group, and the exercise will draw on the knowledge of everyone present.
There will also be a range of inspiring presentations to stimulate ideas.
Ideas from the day will be collated and presented to a panel of senior local politicians, policy makers and leading thinkers on public service reform.
An Inspiring and Interactive Programme
The groups will examine different elements of the challenge relating to innovative commissioning, new models for delivery, investment, impact measurement and the culture change required to make new things happen.
We will be covering the key elements for success in creating transformative new partnerships to tackle problems and meet local needs:
- Markets - the ‘art of the possible’ , e.g. innovation partnerships and co-design/co-development/co-investment
- Money - social investment, e.g. new forms of patient capital, new models for SIBs, financing PBR, crowd funding to build community assets
- Models - e.g. joint ventures, spin-outs, social primes, and consortia
- Measurement - a clear theory of change; articulating social value; robust metrics; sensible proxies for long-term impact
- Culture - making it happen; the building blocks for transformation
There are limited places for each type of organisation attending, with a total of 60 delegates. You are advised to book your place as soon as you can if you want to be sure of taking part.
Parts of the event will be recorded and written-up and shared more widely. Our event programme and details of speakers will be available soon.
