Staffordshire Fire and Rescue service will once again be hosting its yearly conference on Thursday November 15, 2018, at the Best Western Moathouse Hotel, Festival Park, Stoke-on-Trent.
This year’s conference is proud to announce that presenter and historian Tessa Dunlop, who is best known for her work on the BBC Two Bafta-winning series Coast, will be presenting at the conference. Tessa is also well renowned for her historical literary works with a recent Times Bestseller ‘The Century Girls’.
This year’s event focuses on the contribution women make to managing change. In the year that celebrates the Representation of the People Act centenary, it would be remiss of us not to weave the changes that have happened into our celebrations. As a fire and rescue service we have been nationally recognised for our Maternity Policy by the Equality and Human Rights Commission and we have been recognised in the media by both the Sunday Times Top 50 Employers of Women and the Financial Mail for our representation of women in our Board Room.
There will be opportunities to network with colleagues from a range of private sector, public sector, charity organisations and volunteers.
More information including confirmed speakers and workshops will be released soon. Places are limited so please book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
The cost of the conference is £45 and £10 of this will be donated to the Firefighters Charity.
