We run a diverse range of events featuring some of the world's most innovative public servants, politicians and academics to stimulate fresh thinking about government.

Our events range from conferences and lectures to small, focused seminars and workshops on contemporary issues affecting government. They provide opportunities to engage through formal debate and informal discussion.

Our building is set in the heart of Westminster and Whitehall and provides an ideal meeting place to discuss the challenges of making government work.
