This week’s podcast is a live show, recorded at the New Local Government Network’s annual conference on 26 February. (We did this last year, and nobody got fired, so here we are again.)
The topic under discussion this time is inclusive growth – who is losing out from our current economic model, and how we fix that. To discuss that I was joined by Paul Najsarek, the chief executive of the London Borough of Ealing; Tamar Reay, who works in procurement at Preston City Council, and has worked on the “Preston model”, in which councils do more to support local businesses; and Stuart Field, the founder of social enterprise Bread Funds UK.
Live shows are FUN and we haven’t done enough of them, so in the no doubt highly likely event you’re reading this as someone with both a venue and some recording equipment, why not drop me a line?
The episode itself is below. You can subscribe to the podcast on Acast, iTunes, or RSS. Enjoy.
