Following last year's Spending Review completed and several new white papers, attention within Whitehall departments is turning to programme design. The successful delivery of programmes relies on the skills, knowledge, and cooperation of different levels of government – usually Whitehall departments at the centre and councils and/or local/regional agencies at the delivery end. Government programmes need effective facilitation, mediation, and translation to create trusting and productive relationships between partners. This is what we term ‘bridge-building’. This webinar contains advice for both policymakers at the centre and delivery partners on the front-line and testimonies from experts who understand what works and what doesn’t. The webinar is chaired by Mutual Ventures' Andrew Laird. He is joined by:
Emily Miles, Chief Executive of the Food Standards Agency. Emily has also held senior positions in DEFRA, Cabinet Office and Home Office, so brings vast experience of delivering change within government.
Paul Morrison, Director of Planning Transformation from the Department for Levelling Up Communities and Housing. Paul has previously held senior positions at the Home Office where he led the Syrian refugee relocation programme.
