1st Transition Institute Regional Spin-out Camp: North West (Manchester)
We are delighted to invite you to our first Transition Institute Spin-out Camp (North West). This is the first of a series of three that will be held throughout the year. Come along to an inspiring and informative day, a neutral space to explore some of the most current debates and issues in public service reform. The event is aimed at both practitioners and commissioners who are delivering and procuring public services respectively.
The event is taking place on Thursday the 29th March, 9.30am - 15.00pm at the lovely offices of Hempsons Solicitors in Manchester, at Portland Tower, Portland Street, M1 3LF (venue map can be found here)
The programme consists of an interactive, action-packed day of three practical workshops that are being delivered by experts in the field:
- Building a viable Business: lead by Justine Andrew, Business Development Director at KPMG
- Innovation in delivery models: lead by Dan Gregory, Independent Advisor at Common Capital
- Legal issues (covering issues such as governance and TUPE): lead by Ian Hempseed, Partner at Hempsons Solicitors
In addition to the practical workshops and networking opportunities, after lunch we will be presenting and discussing our second Transition Institute Starting Point Paper on the theme of Commissioning and procurement with social value [Available for download here].
This paper is intended to set up the basis for a debate to build up a collaborative piece of research. In keeping with this joint approach, we will be hosting a focus group at the event (open to all attendees) to capture thoughts and comments so that we can ensure that this document contains practical guidance for all the relevant issues and concerns. Every person attending the event will receive a copy of the publication beforehand.
