Civil Service Live was a huge success not least because our Chair was part of the winning team, Team Liverpool. Sir Gus O’Donnell, Head of the Home Civil Service  said the winners, and indeed all 16 competitors, made him feel proud to lead the civil service. And one of his fellow judges,  Sir Peter Gershon, said the best people in the private sector would struggle to emulate the performances of the respective teams.

The 3 day event was packed full of sessions covering topics ranging from innovation to sustainability to a detailed presentation from the Home Office about their Contest Strategy.  There was even a surprise visit by Prince Charles!
