We will be joined by our keynote speaker David Kennedy, Chief Executive of Northampton Borough Council.

Our Forum will be a blend of presentations and discussion, with the outcome to share best practice, develop your thinking and help you build a strategy for getting the most from your people at work. Our agenda is as follows:

Our venue is the award winning Saracen's Head, Little Brington, and guarantees to generate the right kind of atmosphere for us to discuss and develop our ideas on how to lead in 2013 and beyond.

About our guest speaker: David Kennedy has been Chief Executive of Northampton Borough Council (NBC) since 2007 serving a population of 217,500 residents. David came to Northampton at a time when the Council was under Government supervision and regarded officially as a failing authority. This was turned round within two years and in 2010 Northampton was listed as one of the most improved Councils in the country.

David believes that motivated and engaged teams produce good results. Since 2007, morale and motivation amongst NBC employees has continuously improved whilst the organisation of the Council has changed massively. The Council is now much smaller, producing better results, and is helping to change the county town into a dynamic force for the growth of Northamptonshire.
