Join us to explore Governing Public Bodies of the Future, at the PCF Conference 2020. Our annual conference provides Chairs with the opportunity to share their experiences and insights over an extended session and concludes with a networking drinks reception.

The programme is still taking shape, but here is a flavour of proceedings:

Innovation vs Stability: The Chair’s role in preparing public bodies for change This thought-provoking panel session will consider the balance between innovation and stability in governing a public body, focusing on the impact of governance structures on ALBs and the public they serve, as well as some stimulating best-practice examples.
Professor Simon Gaskell, Chair of Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education
Alison Thorne, Chair of Chwarae Teg and board member at Sports Wales
Dr Nneka Abulokwe OBE, MicroMax Consulting founder

Strategic advantage: why data is make or break This frank and forward-looking panel session will highlight cutting-edge success stories, and discuss why Chairs need to harness the latest strategic developments in the area of digital and data.
