Navigating Big Society and the changing public arena

Following the Efficiency Exchange's online conference Getting More with Less, Local Government Channel brings together key speakers Ceri Jones, Head of Policy and Research at the Social Enterprise Coalition, Sharon Cuff, Head of Procurement Lincolnshire and Roger Britton, Head of Organisational Development for Worcestershire County Council to discuss key issues surrounding the Efficiency Agenda.

Among the main challenges facing those trying to make sense of the cuts: finding new and smarter ways to procure goods and services, different methods of working and forming alternative partnerships.
