The Guardian Public Services Summit has, over the years, won an envied reputation for the quality of its debate. Presenters and audiences alike are encouraged to think out loud, to accept and respond to challenge and provocation.
The summit is aimed at forward-thinking chief executives, elected and board members of local authorities and voluntary organisations, civil servants and all those who supply the public services “industry” with goods, services, advice and food for thought.
As such, it was no surprise when Kavita was invited to be Speaker at the evening drinks reception and gala dinner hosted by Mr Tim Brooks, managing director of Guardian News and Media.
“Since it’s inception six years ago, I have been delighted to support the Guardian’s Public Services Summit. The event provides an excellent opportunity for professionals to help shape the public services agenda for the years ahead. I would recommend anyone passionate about the future of their organisations and public service delivery to attend.”
Sir Gus O’Donnell
Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Home Civil Service
