OVERVIEW View Conference Agenda
Our 4th annual conference on public sector governance examines how good governance can be delivered in all bodies which spend public money to provide services.
The conference will address a core finding of the Independent Commission on Good Governance in Public Services – that Governance is dynamic. Good governance encourages public trust and participation enabling services to improve; but bad governance fosters low morale and adversarial relationships leading to poor performance and dysfunctional organisations.
This conference, led by the Scottish Government’s Cabinet Secretary for Finance and Constitution, will cover four themes:
• Good Governance: The Policy Context in 2017
• What Does Good Governance Look Like for Services and Consumers?
• Turning Good Governance Principles into Practice
• Tackling Today's Challenges
In times of reducing budgets and rising expectations, delivering good governance is critical to being able to achieve the balance between financial challenge and service demand. This conference examines what good governance is, what it looks like and how it can be achieved.

The great thing about the ACES event is that it is also a genuinely fun day to attend- you have the excitement of the award for Scottish PA of the year, followed by a glass of fizz and the relax and pamper session. It is a unique opportunity for us and also great to be involved in recognising the great work of PAs across Scotland
