Greater social and economic challenges lead local government to seek out more innovation and creativity. Councils are pushing beyond incremental change and transforming the way public services are delivered. At this event we will hear from leading local authorities that have sought new ways to develop services, and hear from those who have studied innovation and identified the key ingredients needed for success.
