The first Public Service Academy event for the University of Birmingham alumni took place on 24th May in Birmingham Council House. The keynote speaker was Professor Helen Sullivan, former Professor in Government and Society and Lead on the Birmingham Policy Commission on the future of public services, and now Director of the Centre for Public Policy at the University of Melbourne.
In When Tomorrow Comes – one year on and half a world away she reflected on her work with the Policy Commission in light of her more recent experience in Australia.
Two days later Helen recorded this short video.
The well attended event proved very popular with alumni and we are now planning for future alumni events, taking into account responses to the Alumni questionnaire
