On the 3rd October 2013 at Cardiff’s Park Plaza Hotel, Gorwel held its first large-scale conference. It was on the theme of Can Welsh Public Services thrive without the Market? Those central speakers are shown in the photos attached. There were some 70 people attending. The central aim was to produce a set of themed discussion points which will be submitted to the Commission on Public Service Governance and Delivery. The results will be published on the website at a later date. The conference was co-sponsored by Co-operative Public Service Mutuals and Positif Politics.
