UK construction firms are hiring at their fastest pace for 5 months and sector optimism is at a 9 year high - good news for jobs and the economy.

There’s definitely a pro-work, pro-business and pro-aspiration feel to much of what is included in the new government's first Queen's Speech, but will the legislative programme help create the conditions to boost productivity and living standards?

New ways of competing are now straining against a regulatory environment designed for a different world. In our discussions around the 18th Annual Global CEO Survey, we have found that business leaders accept the need for regulation – but want it to be smarter.

The concept of ‘smart cities’ has emerged as a way to manage and mitigate the challenges that a growing city puts on its infrastructure, social fabric and environment – while achieving the full potential of our expanding urban centres. But what is meant by a smart city and how should city authorities develop one?

At a time when it has never been tougher to run large organisations, businesses must transform if they are to survive. Struck by global megatrends ranging from demographic upheaval to climate change to the breakneck pace of technological breakthroughs, today’s leaders are operating in an environment of unprecedented complexity – and their organisations are no longer fit for purpose. Take a look at this new page on 'Why transformational leaders are so important'.

Absolutely thrilled to be joining the fantastic team of Essex Conservatives at Essex County Council.

This week is Children's Mental Health Week. Did you know one in ten children aged between 5 and 16 years (three in every classroom) has a mental health problem?

By talking openly with children about their feelings, and getting help, we can do our best to ensure that small problems don't grow with the child, and become more serious when they are adults. One of the most important life skills we teach our children is knowing when to ask for help.

Organisations such as Place2Be​ help to make sure that children receive the support they need.

Story
Tagline
Management Consultant at PwC
Introduction
My name is Stephen Canning and I currently live in Braintree, Essex where I was born and raised. I’m interested in startups, politics, writing and running – though not all four at the same time!

I work as a consultant at PwC, based in London, where I'm particularly interested in local government, social media and digital technology.

I was proudly elected as District Councillor for the Bocking Blackwater ward of Braintree District Council in May 2011 where I currently serve on the Governance Committee, Member Development Group and chair the Youth Strategy Group and was nominated for the Digital Councillor of the year award by the LGiU.

In August 2014 I was elected as Deputy Chairman (Political) of Conservative Future, the under 30's wing of the Conservative Party, nationally.

A little while ago I set up something called Braintree Hour followed by Chelmsford Hour, they’ve grown quite big now and have been an interesting experiment in how businesses can connect with each other online. I've held real world networking events on the back of these which have been well received.
