This year's conference is built around five key themes:
- Outcomes-based contracting
- Outcomes orientation
- Measuring outcomes and value for money
- Procurement and social value
- Government, business and civil society collaboration in places
These theme are all underpinned by a single core question: how can government combine its multiple roles – sometimes as provider, funder, facilitator, and regulator – to support activity which improves social outcomes?
This year's keynote speaker: Professor Joseph Stiglitz
We are delighted that Professor Joseph Stiglitz will be delivering the Social Outcomes Conference 2021 keynote speech on Thursday 9 September at 1 pm BST.
