City Leaders' Forum

"What is a city of value?"

And more importantly... how can cities deliver new levels of public value in the post-pandemic world?

Building on the success of the inaugural event in 2021, the City Leaders' Forum has become a permanent addition to the APCS Program, offering an opportunity to share strategies and insights focussed on the business of cities.

The City Leaders' Forum provides an exclusive opportunity for non-elected council executive staff including Chief Executive Officers, General Managers and departmental managers, to share their experiences and learnings from their region with one another. The program will include insights from high-level speakers, as well as interactive breakouts where attendees can discuss key issues together.

The 2023APCS City Leaders' Forum, powered by KPMG, was successfully held. The Forum explored innovative drivers of value for city ecosystems - delving into physical, digital and sustainable realms - to unlock new levels of opportunity for the modern era. The "Shaping Cities of Value" report was produced following the 2023APCS City Leaders' Forum.
