NORTH OF ENGLAND DEPUTYSHIP DEVELOPMENT DAY
Following on from our first two events, we are pleased to announce that Finders International is to stage its third Development Day in York on Thursday 1st March at the Hilton Hotel, York.
These highly popular events are aimed at Deputyship teams in the public sector by bringing them together in a neutral setting, and giving staff time to reflect on their roles and network with other authorities carrying out a similar role. There will also be a number of professional deputies from the private sector in attendance. The agenda will be available in the new year once we have confirmed all speakers.
The free event will feature speakers on a wide range of topics, relevant to all who manage client finances, with lunch and refreshments provided. David Lockwood, an ex-local authority Deputy now working as Public Sector Development Manager for Finders International said “We aim to support local authorities where staff are often working in isolation with little support or understanding of their role”, he continued, “it’s vital that they have the chance to come together and discuss the issues that affect them all”.
Each authority can nominate two delegates plus a reserve. This can be done by completing our online registration form.
We look forward to seeing delegates in the spring.
