We have always been very proud of our events. They brought people together and allowed them time and space to think through new problems. For obvious reasons we are moving things online - using MS Teams for smaller workshops and Zoom for larger events. We are trying to keep things interactive so bring your questions and your creativity.
A few people are getting frustrated when booking tickets for events very late (sometimes even after they have started). For reasons we needn't go into just now, we are not using the automatic integration of Eventbrite and Zoom. This means that shortly before the event a human (who we call Steve) will send you your link. Shortly before the event starts Steve will be mucking in with the event and will not see any late orders. So - book tickets at least a day in advance if you want to be sure.
The planning service of 2024
We are running a couple of workshops for heads of service interested in a project we are doing in Summer 2021. It is to explore what the changes proposed in the planning white paper (and the Environment Bill) will mean for the way planning services are configured. It is our attempt to go further than the slightly nebulous concepts of "skills and capacity" and to use data to model what it will mean for income, costs and workload. Pick the day that suits you - either 13th April or 21st April.
