The Inspire 2020 Conference offers local government officers an opportunity to consider the impact they have on their communities, through their individual roles and as part of their wider council. 

As local government officers, what we do on a daily basis affects how people in our communities live their lives; how much time they spend in outdoor pursuits, what those pursuits are, what cultural activities they undertake, where they spend time with kids and family.  It also impacts how they connect with neighbours and others in the community.  To some extent, what local government does affects how people behave, their sense of community, their confidence and their wellbeing.  It is a large responsibility but it is rewarding when you see the impacts of your success.

Inspire 2020 will examine different aspects of local government impact and the ways we shape that.  Be it through physical design of the community, through the services and support provided or in the way we inform and educate.  It will also discuss the potential flow-on impacts as interconnected and interdependent communities experience effects of actions taken in both neighbouring and more distant areas.

Lucy now consults as a strategy machine and governance gun for start-ups, NFPs and big business. You will find Lucy Bloom challenging and entertaining in equal measure. She’s a rule breaker, idea maker and momentum creator inspiring audiences with humour and captivating storytelling, with the business acumen to fortify an unforgettable message.
