Leadership in uncertain times…
It’s been quite a summer so far, with Brexit precipitating a tumultuous time in national politics and leaders falling left, right and centre. Thankfully local politics and society in general has pretty much got on with it and the day to day of local services for our communities does not change much… at least not yet. But what I have been struck by is the focus on what good leadership looks like.
TSRC and the Family Potential Research Centre at the University of Birmingham would like to invite you to a seminar entitled 'Public service markets don’t work and they can’t: insights from the voluntary sector' delivered by Kathy Evans of Children England.
