SPACES Study Day 2018 – Collaboration in the Public Sector

After last year’s extremely successful sell out event, this year’s study day theme is ‘Collaboration in the Public Sector’. Throughout the day we will explore the relevance and importance of ‘Collaborative Working’ and how it enables all parties involved on a project to efficiently and effectively deliver client outcomes, including value for money. Supported by key speakers/organisations and case studies, the day will explore the theme from different perspectives.
