Policy, planning and lessons in leadership - Part of the Knowledge Policy Profession Unit in Birmingham

A group of people in silhouette stood in front of a large bar chart with a yellow arrow indicating they are moving upwards.

Learn from the very best - spend a morning with a Director General exploring policy, the role of transport and infrastructure in revitalising communities - above all, discover what it takes to lead through complex challenges.

On Friday 1 May, Tricia Hayes CB, Director General and Head of the Policy Profession at Department for Transport, will share her rich leadership insights and experience in a unique workshop for senior managers, organised by the Policy Profession Unit and CS Local:

"An excellent and very thought-provoking morning. More of this sort of thing please!"

"Fantastic workshop - it gave me so much to think about and really opened my eyes"

"An excellent, engaging and informative workshop. Tricia was highly motivating, inspiring and relatable speaker."

"[Tricia's] frankness was much appreciated - I found her very engaging, a really effective (and fun) communicator!"

Designed for senior managers (G6/7s) and Fast Streamers, this session will help you to think about:

  • Making the right choice: how do you ensure you get it right?
  • How to make sure the elements are properly joined up
  • Understanding the context so your policy will work
  • Managing stakeholders and their often competing aims

As with all Knowledge Series workshops, you can expect to:

  • Learn from the real experiences, insight and achievements of those who have actually worked on a high-profile Government project, a problem area or in a particular situation
  • Learn from your fellow delegates/ gain the benefit of their different viewpoints; and
  • Make new contacts beyond your Department and build your professional network.

When: Friday 1 May 2020

Where: Five Ways House, Birmingham, B15 1SL
