New sessions added

Civil Service Live is the biggest single learning and development opportunity of the year for civil servants, and counts towards your annual five-days’ learning and development.

There’s a huge range of presentations, workshops and exhibition stands where you can see and hear about what other parts of the Civil Service are doing, be inspired to do things differently and take what you’ve learnt back to your teams and colleagues.

Owing to demand, we’ve laid on repeat sessions for some presentations, and we’ve added some new ones.

Sessions include an innovation showcase, where civil servants present their ideas for improving the way we work to Jeremy Heywood, before an audience of other civil servants. And you can see John Manzoni speak about how we create ‘T-shaped’ people, a metaphor for the mix of broad experience and deep skills the Civil Service needs to deliver world-class public services.

Whether you’ve registered already or not, there is still some space left in the following sessions. So, to avoid disappointment, book yourself in here.
