    Regeneration Masterclass 2010

    The 2010 Regeneration Masterclass was another resounding success.  It took place amidst a changing political landscape:  the first two modules, in March and April, were delivered during the final months of the Labour government, while the third module, in May, took place just after the General Election which brought in the new coalition government of Conservatives and Liberal Democrats.

    This change of Government, against the background of the economic downturn, heralded further major change for regeneration.  The Masterclass was a timely opportunity for experts in the field to begin to discuss, predict and incorporate into practice these changes. 

    Speakers included Peter Housden, Permanent Secretary, CLG, Richard Ford of Pinsents, and Bruce Mew of Grant Thornton, along with many other experts from public, private and third sector organisations.

    The Feedback from delegates was again extremely positive, and included the following:

     ‘It is very difficult to single out an individual aspect from the 3 superb masterclass sessions. However, a common golden thread which has run throughout has been to carry on regardless and stay determined – despite lack of resources. There have been some terrific practical examples shown of innovative and creative solutions in overcoming obstacles and tailoring responses to the difficult circumstances we are now faced with.’

    ‘Networking allows me to gauge a wide range of political and delivery views.’

    ‘A challenging and yet highly enjoyable experience. I have gained considerable new knowledge that I can put to immediate effect in my role.  Excellent value for money.’

    ‘A sobering analysis of the current climate in regeneration, but offering genuinely innovative and practical solutions for bringing aspirations into reality.’
