Starting conversations @12.45
After each session there will be a 15-minute networking break, which is designed to start conversations, expand on talking points, ask questions to peers and make new contacts.
Ice breaker questions
- Is your organisation customer, client or service orientated?
- Is there anything your organisation has done specifically to ensure that it is reflective of a changing Britain?
- How can organisation, communities and the Government work smarter together?
