Ep. 18 Sir Richard Leese - The 24 year journey so far...

Sir Richard Leese, long-standing leader of Manchester City Council joins Public Sector Voices host, Emily Rodgers to discuss the events throughout his 24-year reign and the future landscape of the city.

It is a task that is still ongoing, but rebuilding Manchester up from where is was all those years ago has taken the industrial city, with a falling population, to the thriving, buzzing hub it is today – all under the watchful eye of Mr.Leese. 

A huge part of the vision for Manchester going forward, is the 2038 zero emissions target, something the Council is keen to beat. Making the next five years absolutely critical.

Retrofitting, active travel and a green Council fleet are among the key drivers of reaching that goal, as well as promoting healthy lifestyles across the region to build a strong and healthy population and build an economy of the future ‘using the real strengths that we already had.’

There is already an abundance of good news coming from the city, with Manchester being one of the healthiest places for people to return to work, but as Mr.Leese says “It’s not time to go wild yet.”

Join us on a journey through Manchester’s history and feel part of its future on this week’s episode of Public Sector Voices.

Webinar: Driving sustainability & value through technology end-of-life

End-of-life is often overlooked yet is equally as important to a digital strategy, but what happens to end-of-life technology? What is the impact on the environment, net zero targets? What is the financial impact, is value for money for the taxpayer simply discarded and destroyed along with the technology?
 

Join us on 13 September between 2:00pm-2:45pm where we look to address the lifecycle of a digital strategy with a focus on end-of-life using examples, achieving efficiency, increased sustainability and delivering cost savings.
