Workshops and Briefings

IT Directors workshop at CIPFA

This Quadnet-led workshop was influenced by an article published by Government Computing on the topic of ‘Managing Upwards’ and was promoted and hosted at CIPFA.




We gave the briefing to 6 IT Directors. The group rated it overall at over 85% on the quality of the workshop content, value to their roles and relevance to councils.
