The holidays are coming!

Its the last day the office is open prior to the Christmas break and I am looking forward to the holidays, as for once I am going to stay at home and do nothing.

Over the water!

Spent a couple of days in Northern Ireland, day one is a joint APSE and DoE conference on customer service and I present our views on the matter, along with the Minister Arlene Foster. Arlene spends a bit of time praising APSE in her contribution and this is very welcome, the civil servants are also very friendly and hopefully we can do more joint working in the future. The 80 delegates appear satisfied with the event and hopefully we have all shared some learning.

Solving the South East's carbon problem!

Chaired two of the key sessions at the low carbon South East conference in Southampton today. The event at Southampton University brought together local government, the wider public sector, academia and the private sector to discuss how we can collectively tackle the issue of climate change and make an economic advantage from innovation and entrepreneurship in this area. The South East is the strongest performing area of the U.K.s economy but that also brings with it the problem of being the highest carbon creator.
