Culture Change and Winter Resilience Virtual Meetup

Culture Change and Winter Resilience Virtual Meetup

Panoramic Associates are thrilled to bring you our second Change and Transformation Meetup!

We were joined by Stephen Taylor, who is the Corporate Director, Adult Social Care at London Borough of Islington, and Donna Vickers,Assistant Director of Strategy and Transformation at Herefordshire Council. The topic was Culture Change Transformation.

You said, we did - following the suggestions from our last event, this session focused on culture change within councils. Expect to hear about stakeholder management, collaborative working and supporting cross-council departments to adopt a team approach to a wider council vision.

With winter fast approaching, we'll also discussed best practice for ensuring councils are supporting their residents with their winter resilience programmes. Have your questions ready!
