Leading Transformation - The English Local Government Experience

The recent SOLACE (Scotland) Conference closed with a masterclass around the English local government experience of leading transformation. Hosted by Annemarie O’Donnell, Chief Executive, Glasgow City Council, and one of SOLACE Scotland’s portfolio leads within the Leadership, Governance and Transformation Strategic Theme, this masterclass provided delegates with the opportunity to hear from the following speakers:


  • Tony Reeves, Deloitte and ex-Chief Executive, Bradford City Council
  •  Donna Hall, CBE, Chief Executive, Wigan Council
  • David Harker, Deloitte
  • Angela Mitchell, Lead Partner, Deloitte Local Government Consulting Team


Each speaker presented their experiences of leading and driving transformation at a time of severe financial austerity, including the challenges they encountered, how they overcame them and the lessons learned. The paper provides a write-up from that masterclass and is intended to further inform and support councils in their change and transformation programmes.
