     are you ready for
      the new landscape?
This year, the full consequences of the spending cuts have become clearer and a new
public services landscape has begun to emerge.

Coping with unprecedented drops in funding will present career-defining challenges to
the people who manage public money and public services.

And the coalition Government’s reform programme – the transparency agenda, shared
services and teams, new audit arrangements, GP commissioning, the Big Society,
structural changes in the NHS, Local Enterprise Partnerships and more – will all require
expert financial management, change management, and leadership.

Through a plenary programme and practical workshops, this year’s CIPFA annual
conference will explore each of the critical issues and the key skills you will need to
succeed as the new public services landscape emerges over the coming years.

  Who should attend?

The CIPFA Annual Conference is the year’s essential event for people who manage public money and public services,
including: chief executives, resource directors, directors of finance, heads of department and finance professionals
working in local and central government, the health service, police, housing, education and the not-for-profit sectors.
