Thank you for visiting the SOLACE in the South East Seminar website and booking information page. The programme has been developed using feedback from those working in the local government field and wider public sector. The blend of sessions along with opportunities to network has been greeted with very positive feedback in our regional events across the UK. The fees for this seminar have been subsidised for SOLACE Members and the non-member rate is provided at cost to encourage those who are not yet in membership to come along and enjoy the day. The venue, Sunningdale Park (the National School of Government until 2012), is just 50 minutes from London by train and easy to access by car. There is onsite accommodation and onsite parking.

I hope this event will be a perfect opportunity to hear from leading speakers in a professional environment which is ideal for networking.
