Another session this morning was delivered by Rob Whiteman who is currently Chief Executive of the London Boorough of Barking and Dagenham and is moving on to head up the IDeA...

Rob argued that there are good examples of innovation all over the place and that innovation is a core leadership competence. He feels that we need to create a framework within which innovation can flourish. So how do we take people with us into this perfect storm and into our brave new world? Rob feels that the future is about self-review, self-improvement and responsibility. We need to address the lack of trust in the system but recognise that the 'best people' look for opportunities and places where they can be innovative, be creative and do things differently.
