7th & 8th November 2013

Once again the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives and Senior Managers (Solace) in the South West are planning a must attend Annual Seminar at Dartington Hall near Totnes, Devon. The 2013 event will take place on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th November and will be preceded by a South West Chief Executives Meeting on the morning of Thursday 7th November. The seminar itself is open to all those in the Local Government field, with Solace Members receiving a subsidised rate to attend.

The Seminar will explore a range of contributory subjects e.g. Ambitions for economic growth, facilitating recovery through a strong vision for inward investment and unlocking business growth and generating jobs through improving skills. Each session will be led by a top contributor in that field. With Central Government increasingly focussing on raising economic performance, not to mention the future resources of Local Government depending more and more on the performance on their local economy this is an event that cannot be missed.
