CIPFA annual conference – speech by Gareth Davies

Our new C&AG, Gareth Davies, spoke at CIPFA’s annual conference on Tuesday 9 July.

The key takeaways from his session on ‘How public services succeed in challenging times’ were:

  • Be clear about strategic purpose and objectives, reconciling statutory requirements and local needs
  • Engage with the local community to build resilience and manage demand
  • Manage risk, be honest when things go wrong and apply the learning
