Brodies is holding a free half-day conference “Delivering public services – What’s right for Scotland?” on Wednesday 3rd November in Stirling.

Earlier this year we commissioned a major survey of local authority Chief Executives and Chief Finance Officers which provides a fascinating insight into how Scottish Councils might respond to budget constraints by embracing new models for service delivery.

The results of the survey will feed into the central themes of what promises to be a lively discussion:

  1. To what extent can shared services (in their various formats), outsourcing and even off-shoring reduce the cost of public sector services in Scotland?
  2. Is it time for a radical shake up? Can Scotland learn from models used elsewhere in the UK?

Our panel of speakers includes:

  • Jonathan Pryce, Director for Improving Public Services, Scottish Government
  • George Black, Chief Executive, Glasgow City Council
  • Dave Watson LLB, Unison
  • Brian Devlin, Business Director, AMEY
  • Douglas Mathie, Partner, Transformation & Shared Services Group, Brodies LLP

Following the presentations there will be a debate chaired by Jackie McGuire Head of our Transformation and Shared Services Group.

The event starts at 0830 with breakfast and finishes at 1300 with a buffet lunch.

The event is at the Barcelo hotel in Stirling (near the railway station).
