#1 Free Training & Valuable Learning
Of course, the obvious. Throughout the day you’ll hear from our thought leaders on a range of different topics relevant to the local government sector. You’ll hear all the top tips and suggested best practices. From internal advice such as reducing your council's carbon footprint, managing your time and mental wellbeing to external guidance including engaging your community through social media and ensuring your website is accessible to all. You’ll even see recent changes to the JPAG Practitioner’s Guide & Model Councillor Code of Conduct to ensure you are up to date with proper practices.
#2 Connecting with Local Councils
Scribefest brings hundreds of Clerks, RFO’s and Councillors together each year, so you’ll be able to interact and engage not only with other members of local councils in your area, but across England, Wales & Scotland. You’ll also be connected with a range of experts in their industry, and if you have visited the Scribefest website, you know we mean experrrts! All at your fingertips and ready to answer your questions. You may even learn something from another attendee’s question that you would have never thought to ask!
#3 Memorable Experience
Scribefest is tailored specifically for the local government sector and many of our speakers have years of experience working directly with local councils.They understand the most common pain points and areas of confusion, meaning their session is shaped for you to get the most out of it. You’ll be able to pick and choose which sessions are most useful for you and join us just before it’s due to start. There’s something to take away from each session, whether that’s useful information and tips you can implement in future, a new perspective that sparks ideas or simply a fun and engaging time that leaves you feeling refreshed.
