The Conference Will Focus On
Various sessions will examine how councils are ensuring an improved liveability for their community. From conducting authentic engagement, creating digital strategies or measuring community impact, we will explore the need to put communities at the heart of our ‘SMART’ strategies in order to effect real and positive improvements in their wellbeing.
Investing in Partnerships
We will examine how the power of the many far outweighs that of the few, as we look at case studies of councils working together to create and implement their ‘SMART’ strategy, through to the value of collaboration and bringing disparate resources together to design the new tomorrow.
The Value of Data
At the core of effective decision making is reliable data that illustrates a picture of the community, not only at that place in time, but for generations to come. This data underpins how council responds now and plans for the future, constantly changing and adapting with the needs of the community to deliver a strategy which is ‘SMART’ for them.
What Tomorrow is Bringing
‘SMART’ councils are looking ahead, planning for tomorrow and embracing the change that inevitably comes. We will examine in detail what tomorrow may be bringing and how ‘SMART’ councils are planning for the disruption of the future.
