Recorded live from sunny Bournemouth, LGiU joined the great and the good of local government at the LGA’s annual conference this week. We discuss the messages coming from Secretary of State James Brokenshire and new LGA chair Cllr James Jamieson, as well as updates from LGiU’s fringe events.

We caught up with many friendly faces at our reception with CAMRA, including CAMRA regional director Nigel Jones, and discussed how to support women into leadership roles at our breakfast meeting with the Fawcett Society – we interviewed Cllr Emily Smith, Leader of Vale of White Horse District Council, and Cllr Yvonne Davies, Leader of Sandwell Council.

Hosted by Ingrid Koehler, Jonathan Carr-West and Jennifer Glover. Tweet us @LGiU
