In March 2014, Centre for Cities in partnership with Microsoft organised a half-day workshop which discussed the links between public sector reform and economic growth within UK cities, and the urgent need for new approaches to both.
The workshop brought together senior representatives from national government, cities and the private sector, and covered a range of activities and service areas, discussing existing best practice, and emerging approaches that could be more widely taken advantage of across UK cities.
This briefing note provides a summary of the discussion grouped by different themes and a short conclusion highlighting actions that should be undertaken.
