The People’s Powerhouse – Get Involved

This event is a demonstration of diversity and inclusivity of the people and organisations who will deliver growth in the north.

Taking place on Tuesday 9 May 2017 at Doncaster Rovers Football Ground, the convention brings together practitioners, policy makers, opinion formers, local people and stakeholders to share best practice, debate policy and share what’s working.

This is the first opportunity of its kind for everyone to join together to highlight their role in delivering inclusive and good growth in the north. It will attract industry professionals, policy experts and decision makers. It will help you raise awareness of your organisation, campaigns or services, and most importantly it will help us all to work together to shape the kind of north we all want to live and work in.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Dame Louise Casey CB, Director General, Casey Review Team
  • Melanie Dawes, Permanent Secretary for DCLG
  • Jo Miller, President, SOLACE and Chief Executive Doncaster Council

The People’s Powerhouse aims to send a clear signal to Government and policy makers that, whilst essential, a skewed focus on business deals, transport and property without  mention of people, skills or communities will not create the kind of step change we need to see, nor will it create the kind of North we all want to live, work or do business in.

If you want to get involved. you can submit an idea for a workshop online.
