Places are still available for free public sector debate breakfast event

Places are still available for a free breakfast event, where attendees will be able to discuss and debate the future of the public sector.

The free breakfast event will run from 7.45am to 9.30am on Tuesday April 21, at the University’s Sir Colin Campbell Building in Triumph Road, Nottingham (NG7 2TU).

The University of Nottingham’s ‘Ingenuity’ network for businesses –who arranged the event – will be allowing attendees to pose questions on the subject of the UK public sector to a panel comprising of the D2N2 Chairman Peter Richardson, Deputy Chief Executive of Nottinghamshire County Council Jayne Francis-Ward and Steff Wright, Chairman of construction firm the Gusto Group Ltd., with Nottingham Post Weekend Editor Richard Baker acting as panel chair.

This session will last for an hour, tackling questions on the relationship between business and local authorities, whether the public sector is designed to meet business needs, striking a balance between publicly funded services and privatisation, and where they see public sector organisations in ten years’ time. This will be preceded by a breakfast, and after it there will be a chance for audience open discussion and networking.

Peter Richardson has been Chairman of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership since November 2012 and having occupied a variety of roles prior to this, is well placed to talk about public and private sector activities.

Peter said: “Both business and the public sector have seen a lot of changes in the past few years, and had to adapt accordingly.

“There’s less focus now on whether a public or business sector organisation solely delivers a needed project or service, and more on how best to get the job done.

He added:

“I’m sure the audience on April 21 will have a lot of questions about where this approach might take us in the future.”
