Congratulations on a successful conference

I had the pleasure of making the opening remarks at this year’s CG and OCE Staff Conference last week and I know from the feedback I have had that it was a fantastic week.

The programme was varied and engaging, but all linked into the Council’s aims and our aspirations for the city.

The team responsible for the conference deserve enormous praise for their effort, enthusiasm and creativity. I’m sure everyone who attended would agree that all of the hard work paid off. Thank you to everyone who helped organise the conference and also to all who attended.

Places were opened up to members of staff outside of CG and OCE and there was good take-up from other directorates.

All in all there were 31 events over 80 sessions. Fourteen of those were delivered by our own employees and 17 in partnership with other local organisations and charities. More than 400 staff attended.

Those are impressive headline numbers and a great snapshot of the reach of another successful staff conference.
