The fifth NICS Live event will take place on 15th May 2019 at the Waterfront Hall, Belfast. It is an important day in the Civil Service calendar and will involve around 1,500 staff across all grades and professions. We are also planning a number of regional events. Dods is assisting us in the delivery of the Belfast event which I am sure will build on the success of earlier events.
This one day event will feature a wide range of interactive workshops, plenary sessions and exhibition stands allowing delegates to share knowledge and learning across a number of themes including:
- Outcomes Focused;
- Well Led/Effective Leaders;
- High Performing/Skilled People;
- and A Great Place to Work.
These themes will be further developed over the coming months.
Being at NICS Live 2019 will give you an insight into the opportunities and challenges facing the Civil Service at a time when we are balancing acute budgetary pressures with the challenge of delivering the Outcomes Delivery Plan with a renewed emphasis on outcomes and better, more efficient services for citizens, in the absence of Ministers. In this context the event will be important in encouraging fresh and innovative thinking and greater collaboration.
We want to hear about private sector innovation and how you can help us meet the challenges we face. There are a range of commercial opportunities open to you, through Dods, including speaking, sponsorship or exhibiting at the event. I hope you will consider joining us at NICS Live 2019 through sponsorship or exhibiting at the event.
