The Challenges of Government conference will bring together ministers and senior advisors from across the globe, world-class academics, leading CEOs from major multinational corporations, chief economists, and civil society leaders to explore new ideas and discuss best practices around key challenges.

From building integrity and values in government, and discussing new technologies and models of innovation, to implementing government reform and delivering social impact the conference themes will spread across sectors. Some of the sessions will also take on current affairs, including discussions on the future of Europe, how to build cohesive and diverse societies, and how to help governments and societies effectively find their way out of fragility and into sustainable stability.

We have already secured international speakers from a variety of backgrounds. Highlights include: Nick Clegg (former UK Deputy Prime Minister), Sir Ian Cheshire (Government Lead Non-Executive), Lord Browne of Madingley (previously British Petroleum), Margaret Hodge, (MP for Barking), Geoff Mulgan (Nesta), Dato’ Sri Idris Jala (Performance Management and Delivery Unit, Malaysia), Dato Sabariah Hassan (Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development, Malaysia); Professor Donald Moynihan (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Professor Jeffrey Liebman (Harvard Kennedy School), and Professor Sir Paul Collier (Blavatnik School of Government).
