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:
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.
