Event description

Description

Public Policy Projects (PPP) and Cratus Communications are pleased to invite you to our January local government thought leadership breakfast with Sir Howard Bernstein, former Chief Executive of Manchester City Council and Baroness Jane Scott OBE, Leader of Wiltshire Council.

With Sir Howard’s experience of leadership as a Chief Executive of a northern Council that had witnessed trauma and subsequent renewal and Baroness Scott’s experience in bringing five councils together into one unitary authority which, without a Chief Executive, she has led through change, this promises to be a lively event. Join us and join the debate about how best to see through transformative change and the private sector can work with the public sector to secure real and lasting positive differences to communities up and down the country.

Date: January 24th 2018

Time: 7.45am - 9.30am

Location: The Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AG.

Sir Howard Bernstein

Sir Howard's appointment followed the 1996 Manchester bombing which severely damaged much of the city centre and extensive reconstruction ensued. Following the terrorist bombing of the City Centre in 1996, he was appointed Chief Executive of Manchester Millennium Limited, the public/private sector Task Force set up by the Government and the City Council to oversee the redesign and rebuilding of the City Centre, a task which successfully delivered areas such as Piccadilly Gardens, Exchange Square, New Cathedral Street, Urbis on time and on budget.

In addition to major regeneration projects he was also reckoned by the Health Service Journal to be the 21st most influential person in the English NHS in 2015 as a result of his central involvement in the reform of Healthcare in Greater Manchester. In March 2016 he was appointed the leader of the Greater Manchester Sustainability and transformation plan footprint.

Earlier this year he retired from the Council and since then has been appointed by Deloitte as a strategic advisor, specialising in health and social care, government reform and devolution, and regeneration. He has also taken up the role of Patron of the Institute of Economic Development.

Baroness Scott of Bybrook OBE

Jane Scott has been the Conservative Leader of Wiltshire Council since its formation as a unitary council in 2009 - a change which she saw through despite strong opposition. In 2012 she saw through the removal of the posts of Chief Executive and Corporate Director with the responsibilities shared amongst three remaining Corporate Directors. As the seventh largest unitary council in the country, Jane has led a major programme of transformation that has focused on building strong communities, protecting those who are most vulnerable and growing the local economy. The council is recognised nationally for its approach to working with communities across Wiltshire; empowering local decision making and service delivery.

Jane is chair of the Wiltshire Health and Wellbeing Board, the Military and Community Integration Programme, the Wiltshire Public Services Board and is a member of the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Economic Partnership. She was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2010 New Year Honours for services to local government. In August 2015, it was announced that Jane was to be created a life peer, giving her a seat in the House of Lords. As a result, Jane was created Baroness Scott of Bybrook at a ceremony in October 2015.
