f@w at Civil Service Live

future@work recently took centre stage at the Civil Service Live exhibition in London, following an invitation to attend from Cabinet Secretary and Head of the GB Civil Service, Sir Gus O’Donnell. Feedback to the exhibition was outstanding, with visitors ‘tweeting’ and blogging on their positive experience and Sir Gus O'Donnell encouraging people to visit, during his keynote address. Head of the Northern Ireland Civil Service, Bruce Robinson, also spoke at two well received workshops on the NICS reform programme.

One of the key objectives of Civil Service Live was to promote best practice and to inspire innovation across the civil service. More than 200 high quality, practical workshops and plenary sessions were held, with a range of acclaimed and prestigious speakers. Civil Service Live also offered NICS staff the opportunity to build new relationships across the public, voluntary and private sectors and the chance to learn about good practice and innovation from colleagues in England, Scotland and Wales.
