The Development & Regeneration Series – Insight into Chief of Staff Responsibilities


Written by:
Alex Miller,
Practice Director

In the latest instalment of The Development & Regeneration Series, Panoramic Associates’ Practice Director Alex Miller was joined by Chris Shephard, Chief of Staff to the Chief Operating Officer for BCP Council.

Chris has been with the Council for 9 years working his way up to Director of Economic Development as recently as May 2023. He and the Council decided to create and appoint Chris as their Chief of Staff to provide day-to-day support for the current Chief Operations Officer, Jess Gibbons.

In the interview below, Chris covers the logic behind this appointment along with many other current talking points for the Council:

– Where BCP is on the map, and what does the area consist of?
– What the role of a chief of staff consists of in Local Government?
– What benefits of a chief of staff being within an organisation?
– What do you specifically like about the role?

And lots more.

It was an insightful session sharing our views on the topic; it was also an environment to discuss innovative ideas that can be implemented in their respected fields.
