Wolverhampton City Council had an exhibition stand at the Local Government Association Annual Conference in Birmingham. The Managing Director of the City of Wolverhampton Council, senior Councillors and council employees have attend the conference.
The conference is a big event in the local government calendar attracting over 1,300 delegates, 130 speakers and 120 exhibitors. The idea to attend the conference came from City of Wolverhampton employee engagement campaign, 100:100, where the aim was to generate 100 ideas in 100 days.
The conference was a chance for us to promote ourselves as ‘Council of the Year 2017’ and strengthen our city and council brand nationally.
The Managing Director Keith Ireland said “We highlighted the regeneration of the city and the transformation of the council as we engaged with hundreds of key public and private sector stakeholders. We also promoted the current senior leadership job opportunities across the council. The key message we got across is that the City of Wolverhampton is a ‘city of change’ and a ‘city of opportunity’.”
