10.30 - Coffee and Registration

11:00-11:40 – The smart employment conundrum (Sponsored by Hammond Clarke)
Employees and their employers are re-thinking life-styles and life-choices and planning for improved work-life balance in This Smart Life. Work is now a state of mind not a place of labour. Working hours are changing. Every aspect of HR is affected by the smart revolution Recruiting and retaining employees is changing and will go on changing. There are both opportunities and threats as we consider how to manage the remote workforce. What are the implications for the working day in a world that no longer can afford commuting and the rush hour? Both employers and employees can look forward to greater flexibility in all aspects of employment but all will find it flexibility comes at a price. And how does the caring organisation care for a remote workforce? Flexibility in work practices will make diversity easier to achieve but will our attitudes need tuning up to make the most of these new opportunities. With guest panellist Karen GravePresident of the Public Services People Managers Association (PPMA), Nick Chenery, Head of Local Government Practice, Hammond Clarke

12:00-12:40 – Health & wellbeing – The Caring Home. (Sponsored by Pinacl Solutions)
Fitting IOT sensors to dwellings and so improving the health of the occupants not only improves the lives of citizens but can also save local authorities, social landlords, and health and social care services money. Retro-fitting the sensors can work and is worth the effort but getting the fibre into the ground at the start of new build developments is essential. Knowing what to do with the raw data once it starts to flow back up the pipeline is key. With guest panellists Roy Grant Head of super connected cities and digital innovation City of York, Mark Lowe, Strategic relations director Pinacl, Nick Hampson, CEO Karantis 360

13:00-13:40 – Being ‘smart’ about transformation (Sponsored by TBC)
How can you be ‘smart’ about transformation when you are one of many public sector players operating across a large footprint. With Jason Kitcat, Executive Director for Corporate DevelopmentEssex County Council and formerly leader, Brighton & Hove City Council.

14:00-14:40 – The Drone Zone - local airspace management (Sponsored by Dedrone)
Chaired by Joe Tibbetts with guests Amit Samani of Dedrone and Elaine Whyte of PwC. If the need to control local Drone Zone airspace (the space above your head but below the clouds) was not already clear, events at Gatwick and Heathrow over the Christmas/New Year period have proved beyond doubt that management and control of the Drone Zone is essential and urgent. Elaine Whyte twenty years in RAF and now leading the drone research and policy team at PwC and Amit Samani who runs the UK & Europe end of Dedrone will lead the discussion. This is a national issue but the solution is local. Regional constabularies and local authorities are going to have to work closely together to maximise the opportunities while keeping us safe.

15:00-15:40 – This Smart Life (Sponsored by Yotta)
Our smart lives are no longer connected to place. We carry This Smart Life with us everywhere we go and overlapping coverage allows ever more ubiquitous connectivity. We no longer notice or count the spaces where we can connect, we only notice when connection is poor or when we cannot connect at all. This Smart Life is a whole new world, the promise is wonderful, the opportunity beyond imagination but are we just learning how to do the wrong thing quicker, slicker and cheaper.

Darren Capes Intelligent Transport Systems Policy Lead at Department for Transport; Chris Dyer Head of Consultancy at Yotta; Linda Chandler Founder Hyperlocal Cities and formerly Microsoft Smart Cities Lead and Dr David Greenfield founder of SOENECS,Fellow of the CIWM and Chartered Environmentalist take a view.

This programme is part of our An Audience with CLGdotTV series. There are four more programmes being recorded on the same day. You might like to attend more than one. Look here and make your choice

16:00 Close

All this takes place at 58 Victoria Embankment (the NESTA building) two minutes walk from London Blackfriars Station. Cameras are rolling by 11:00am and it's all over bar the handshakes by 3:40pm. Lunch and refreshments? Of course. But let’s be frank, it’s the quality of the brain food not the sandwiches that make this the single most useful ticket for those shaping the future of UK local public services.

An Audience with CLGdotTV is now running more than 20 times each year. eight times a year. We invite a studio audience of around 50 to join us to make five CLGdotTV programmes. There are no power-points and the questions and interventions from the floor are valued as much as much as the panellists' contributions.

Some guests stay with us for just one programme and some stay for the lot. It’s a logistical nightmare but somehow we make it work. Each programme is broadcast on CLGdotTV. Plus we edit a 30-40 minute video summary of the day’s conversations with clips from all the debates.
