CEF AGM and Annual Lecture: 'Leading Transformational Change'

October 21 2014

CEF would like to invite members to the 2014 Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Lecture. As well as discussing the routine business of the AGM, we are pleased to announce that former Permanent Secretary of the Scottish Government, Sir John Elvidge, will share his experiences of transformational change in Scotland, 'delivering outcomes based public services' and 'new contracts between the citizen and the public sector'.

Sir John's experience will be instrumental in guiding the policy development in the lead up to the next Programme for Government (2016), most notably in addressing shared outcomes models and evaluating the effectiveness of the national performance framework.

The event will also consider the adoption of the Chief Executives' Forum Annual Report and Accounts 2013-2014.

Guest speaker Sir John Elvidge KCB

Sir John Elvidge was Permanent Secretary of the Scottish Government from 2003 to 2010. He had previously worked in the Cabinet Office and the Scottish Office and works in an advisory role with several governments in Europe, China and North America. He is an Adjunct Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and works with the University of Oxford on programmes for leadership and public policy for overseas governments. He retired in June 2010 and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and an Associate of the Institute for Government. His report Northern Exposure: Lessons from the first twelve years of devolved government in Scotland was published by the Institute for Government as part of its Inside Out series. Sir John was a Carnegie Fellow from June 2012 to May 2014, leading work on the Enabling State project. He has since been appointed a Carnegie UK Trust trustee.
