Excellence in Place Leadership Programme

Creating an environment for change demands fresh thinking.
As part of our commitment to driving innovation, ADEPT has launched its new Excellence in Place Leadership Programme, in partnership with Amey.

About the programme

We want to bring together forward-thinking ‘thought leaders’ from across ADEPT to examine the key issues and opportunities affecting our sector.
The aim is to create an enduring, self-sustaining and inclusive professional network of thought leaders and influencers, so we are looking for a diverse and inspiring group of 10-12 people who can, and will, make a difference.
The new forum will:

  • Shape the way ADEPT members do business
  • Create an environment for change
  • Catalyse fresh thinking
  • Influence strategy across place

Timings and modules

Typically each session will include keynote speakers, structured discussions and activities to create thought pieces, policy proposals, blogs and articles that can be shared with a wide range of audiences to challenge and stimulate conversation.
Topics will be based around ADEPT's strategic priorities:

  • Session 1: Innovation in Procurement (summary here and thought piece here)
  • Session 2: Making green finance work  (summary here)
  • Session 3: Delivering customer-centric place services
  • Session 4: TBC
