Westward sponsors South West Challenge 2017

Westward sponsors South West Challenge 2017

Westward Housing recently took the opportunity to be a sponsor for the South West Challenge 2017.

South West Challenge is a scenario based development event that offers a rare opportunity for aspiring managers across the South West to gain exposure to issues outside of their working lives and gives them a taste of what senior management is like.

Working in teams of 6 people, delegates spend the day as the management team of a fictional local authority, encountering many of the challenges that a real corporate team would deal with.

Sixteen teams took part and there were team prizes awarded for various challenges on the day and Westward CEO, Barbara Shaw, was pleased to award the prize for Best Residents Magazine to a team from Stroud District Council.

The event was organised by South West Councils which draws together elected representatives from local authorities in the South West, police, fire & rescue services, parish and town councils and the national parks.
