the turning point This year marks a turning point for the public services. The anticipated spending cuts and a new wave of public service reforms will create new challenges and new risks for people managing public money and public services. The coming years will require effective planning, difficult decisions, and confident leadership as the way public money is managed and spent comes under the spotlight as never before. This year’s CIPFA annual conference aims to provide delegates with the strategic insight and skills they need to succeed in the challenges ahead.

The programme Ahead of the first formal day of conference, all delegates are invited to an international seminar and a guest lecture, this year featuring former Lib Dem leader, Charles Kennedy. Charles will be able to share his unique perspective on the balance of power in the new House of Commons. Day one of conference will open with Göran Persson, the former Prime Minister of Sweden. In the early 1990s, with public debt doubling and the budget deficit increasing tenfold, Sweden faced similar challenges to those facing the UK in 2010. In an exclusive UK appearance, Göran will set out how he tackled the deficit and drove through reforms that are cited by many as models for the future of the UK public services. The second day of the conference will open with Colm McCarthy, Irish economist. When Ireland became the first Eurozone country to enter recession in 2008, its Government appointed economist Colm McCarthy to an expert group to recommend cuts in public spending. Colm McCarthy will outline the thinking behind his recommendations, draw out lessons for the UK, and reflect on the Irish experience of spending cuts and reform. The second day of conference will close with Nick Robinson, the UK’s most recognisable political broadcaster. Speaking just weeks after the election, Nick will share his observations from the campaign trails and outline what the election result means for the public finances and public services. Other plenary sessions will feature some of the best-known faces in the public services and politics in a blend of speeches and panel debates.


The workshops Beyond the main stage, a series of workshops with leading practitioners will explore the skills, behaviours and tactics needed on the ground, at all levels of government, to tackle the challenging times ahead.

The programme comprises: ■ Total transformation: lessons from Total Place ■ Asset management: make the most of your assets ■ Personalisation - where’s the risk? ■ Sustainability: Compelling financial arguments to deliver a more sustainable organisation ■ Sharing the gain: approaches to collaboration ■ Powers to invest - services, assets and income generation - legal issues ■ Society of District Council Treasurers (SDCT) ■ Leadership and personal resilience in tough times ■ Investing for the future: pensions and treasury management ■ Accounting for Sustainability ■ A new world of risk: achieving cost savings whilst building resilience ■ Unlocking efficiency with technology

Who should attend? CIPFA annual conference attracts finance managers, directors, chief executives, non-executives and elected members from the full range of public sector organisations, including central and local government, audit bodies, health, housing, and the emergency services. The event is also popular with private sector representatives keen to network with colleagues in the public services and understand their agenda.
