London First...?

Tuesday, 7 July 2009

Interesting to read that a 'leading business lobby group' that goes by the name of London First have launched an attack on London Mayor Boris Johnson, stating that his vision for as Mayor could prove "extremely damaging to London". But why say such a thing? Nothing to do with him being the highest ranking elected Tory in the country would it?

Now, I'd never heard of London First before so I decided to have a little sniff around. And, surprise surprise, look what we

29 January 2009, 12.30pm - 5.00pm at the BT Tower
Led by Common Purpose
This event explored the kind of leadership that is needed to make change happen across London. We were joined by a number of keynote speakers including Jo Valentine, Chief Executive London First, and Leo Boland, Chief Executive GLA, who shared their own personal experiences of leadership, particularly in the current economic climate. Delegates were then given the opportunity to participate in informal cafe-style conversations with the Chief Executives of seven London boroughs. The event was a great opportunity to meet the various chief executives from boroughs and other public organisations and to further explore the themes of the London Collaborative- approaches to resilience, collaboration, adaptive capacity and strategic thinking.

As a matter of fact, if you Google
"london first"+"common purpose" there seems to be pages and pages of results that all make for very interesting reading, this one in particular. Methinks the Leadership Centre for Local Government might be worth keeping an eye on.

The Leadership Centre for Local Government looks like another fake charity.
