Event description

Description

A Connected Procurement & Comissioning Networking event:

Ethical Approaches to Commercialisation in The Local Public Sector


What is this event about?

With ongoing fincancial restraints in the public sector, there comes ever increasing pressure to make savings and ultimately balance budgets. In this event we will be exploring how local public sector organisations can increase their revenue through various commercialisation practices. We will specifically focus on leading examples of ethical commercialisation which generate income for sector in ways which are transparent, appropriate, and desirable for the communities we serve.

There will also be ample time for delegates to reflect on, discuss, and share their own organisation's ethical procurement practices, and question the speakers to gain insights about the challenges, and potential benefits, of adopting new ways of working.

These events are an opportunity for public sector officers, managers, and strategic leaders to learn, share, and network. Each quarter, we invite unique speakers to talk about different aspects of procurement and commissioning.


Who should attend?

This event is aimed primarily at those working in local public sector organisations who are responsible for procurement, commissioning, finance, and transformation at any level of their organisation. It is particularly relevant for those who want to learn more about what the sector can do to balance budgets in innovative ways that seek to improve, rather than cut, local service provision. If you are passionate about helping the public sector to improve and diversify service delivery through commercialisation, this event is for you!
