Championing Growth and Well-Being for a Transformed Public Sector

The Civil Service is on a journey to re-shape facilities management and working practices across the entire public sector. If successful, we can create a workforce which is not only representative of the entire UK and their needs, but also has complete flexibility over how, when and where they work.

In order to meet this challenge the Smart Estates & Workforce Summit, taking place on 10th November 2020, invites professionals to explore, identify & overcome the barriers to successful workplace transformation.

Why attend Smart Estates & Workforce 2020?

The Smart Estates & Workforce Summit is an opportunity to learn about the priorities and direction of the UK Government for estate regeneration & smarter working practices, as well as allowing you to meet the early adopters and those who are successfully driving change.

This one-day conference will bring together leaders in estates & facilities management, learning development and smarter working to share knowledge and insights on modernising working practices across Government.

Discover how to get your projects off the ground, encourage change and create a culture of transformation, whilst meeting the partners and providers who will enable you to do so.

Does what it says on the tin...

Entry, Exit & Enforcement Manager, Ofqual

The conference is always a great place to network in order to improve areas of business. It always re-motivates me to return to work and drive the Anti-Fraud message forward for another year. This years was particularly good, the content was relevant and useful. The venue was excellent and the organisation was very good.
