This year’s Festival of Governance will launch on 22 August, with a month-long campaign inviting us all to think again.
Our keynote speaker for this year’s lecture will be Rob Whiteman, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA).
The public sector reset will have boards from NHS and other public or third sector organisations considering opportunities for change and transformation. The content of a series of discussions, webinars, research and writing will shape the GGI Annual Lecture on 22 September. Good governance because it’s time to think again, or – to give it its full title – Festival 2020, it’s time to think again, Renaissance 2.0, the reboot.
The annual lecture event will include discussions on the reset after lockdown, lessons learnt from the coronavirus pandemic, cross-sector governance, mental health, digital transformation, genomics, the economy, culture, the Enlightenment, black lives matter, the cost of poverty, environmental sustainability, biological cognisance, artificial intelligence and choices for young people.
Today we introduce our panellists, who will be ready and waiting to answer questions ‘retrospectively,’ while considering a future that is fairer and better for all.
Rob Whiteman, Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), ENO Harewood Artist Nadine Benjamin, Dame Janet Smith, Baroness Glenys Thornton, and Stephen McCulloch, Head of Corporate Communications at Ofwat. And JunkBot, Digital Transformer (pronouns: it, their, they and them).
We hope you are ready for some time travel as we stop, pause, fast forward, rewind and play through good governance past, present and future.
Let’s work together to emerge from this crisis stronger than ever. Good governance because it’s time to think again.
