Businesses urged to back Service Guernsey reform

Last week at the March Chamber Lunch Paul Whitfield, Guernsey’s Chief Executive, spoke about his first year in post.

Mr Whitfield told attendees of his plans to publish the principles of the Service Guernsey reform this autumn and asked for businesses to support them and come forward with any suggestions.

He mentioned that misconceptions are undermining the work the States have done. They are working hard on improving clarity of roles, improving public trust and organisation outcomes.

The reform will have value for money at its heart but Mr Whitfield called for support and expertise asking local businesses to have their say on how the States make a difference.

Mr Whitfield summed up saying that tightening up governance is good for government.

We thank Paul Whitfield for providing an insightful talk and hope those of you in attendance found it as fascinating as we did. We look forward to reading the reform later this year.

Thank you also to our venue The Old Government House Hotel and Spa and sponsor Sure.
