Details

Leading through political waters will examine two different possible outcomes: One where there is no overall control and the other leading in single party councils. Leadership and change: How do we get the best outcome for our citizens and communities? How can we get the best out of the relationships we manage and be adaptable, flexible and responsive? Come along and hear from our speakers who will share their experiences and successes. The event provides an opportunity to meet, learn from and network with Solace colleagues and share your own experience and knowledge.
