Economic Growth - support and events

Here you can find a list of upcoming and past events related to economic growth, including roundtables, which forms part of our support offer.


Upcoming events

The LGA will be hosting a roundtable discussion as part of our Economic Growth roundtable series. The roundtable will seek to understand “How can councils engage with businesses to generate growth and investment?”

The upcoming meeting will be hosted virtually on Tuesday 13th July 2021, 10am-12pm. The meeting will be an inclusive discussion and will feature a case study by Michelle Sacks, Deputy Chief Executive of Place at Boston Borough & East Lindsey District Councils followed by a discussion that will be facilitated by Michelle. We will be circulating the agenda beforehand to allow participants to prepare.

This meeting is aimed at council officers working on economic growth and development. There are up to 30 spaces available for this roundtable so please email productivity@local.gov.uk if you are interested in attending by COP, Friday 4th July 2021. Please do pass this invitation on to colleagues who may be interested. Due to limited spaces, we ask that only one officer per council attend.
