Work in Progress 2018 Bursary

Posted By Heather Ette, 31 January 2018

Your chance to attend Work in Progress free of charge!

Work in Progress is back for its fourth year and organisers Carley Consult and IEP are offering three lucky IEP Members the opportunity to attend the event for free!

Taking place at Doncaster Racecourse on 25th April 2018, WIP 2018 will be packed with more new features than ever before and includes special guest speakers Paul Lewis and Polly Toynbee.

Paul Lewis is a prize-winning financial journalist and presenter of Money Box on Radio 4. He also writes extensively on personal finance and money matters in Saga Magazine, the Financial Times, Money Marketing and a wide variety of other publications.

Polly Toynbee is a columnist for the Guardian. She was formerly BBC social affairs editor, columnist and associate editor of the Independent, co-editor of the Washington Monthly and a reporter and feature writer for the Observer.

This year’s conference will also feature its very first “Oxford Union” styled head-to-head debate. Gill Morris, Chief Executive of DevoConnect, will be proposing a motion that devolution will improve the quality, integration, and performance of local public services. Opposing the motion will be Sean Williams, Chief Executive of Corndel Ltd. You, as the audience, will decide who has made the most convincing argument!

Also new to 2018 is the introduction of Mini Masterclasses; innovative, bite sized training workshops delivered by leading sector figures, sharing their ideas and best practice in special hands-on sessions. You’ll also get to see local expert apprentice Alicia Holdsworth, WorldSkills UK Finalist, demonstrating her floristry skills, with the prospect of some audience participation. Talking Tables, a firm delegate favourite, will also feature again in our programme.

Apply now for your free bursary place, deadline closes 23rd February 2018
