For 2021, rather than bringing everyone together at Portsmouth Guildhall, we will instead be broadcasting a Digital Conference directly to you!

We will be keeping the core elements of Conference, with updates from Shaping CEO Stef Nienaltowski and Deputy Leader of Portsmouth City Council Steve Pitt, the Shaping Awards, and of course the networking.

We will also be holding three panel discussions, celebrating the brilliant things happening in the city in the fields of Business, Education, and Community, and for the first time you can Ask The CEO in a live Q&A with Stef.

When you book your ticket, you will receive links to access each part of the event, allowing you to either enjoy the whole day, or drop in and out to suit you. There will also be a short break between each section and a longer break at midday.

Stef said “It gives me great pleasure and excitement to confirm that we are going to run our Annual Shaping Conference in January next year and whilst the delivery will be different the draft agenda already looks like it is going to one of the most interesting.  

“It is more important than ever for us to showcase the work done in 2020 and the achievements by all sectors of our City. It is equally important to show the plans that we have for the coming year and get your involvement in those. We will also have the Shaping awards and the categories will be reduced but the effect these will have on the winners and those associated with them will be as beneficial as ever. 

“So do register and join me in celebrating the achievements of 2020 and looking ahead to 2021 and beyond.”

Please see below to submit your nominations for the Shaping awards, and your questions for Stef, and look out for more details of what will be happening on the day which will be coming soon.

Join us – let’s make a difference together!
