Finance Masterclass: influencing budget decisions within local authorities

November 14, 2019 in Events, Masterclasses and workshops by Teresa Grandi

14th November 2019

Wellington House, London SE1 8UG

Though primarily aimed at new/interim/acting DsPH, this workshop was open to any member who felt they could benefit from support in this area. The objective of the day was to broaden knowledge around financial processes within LAs, so as to support confidence in leading challenging conversations around this topic.

The masterclass focused on the following key areas:

  • An overview of how LA finances work and what a good budget making process looks like.
  • The priorities of an LA Director of Finance and how best to collaborate with them.
  • Negotiation skills/strategies for influencing budget distribution and embedding the PH agenda in other budgets.
