Psychobabble in extremis

Several of our local councillors were bemused to receive an invitation from CAPITA Conferences, inviting them to a "National One Day Conference on Third Sector Commissioning."  Wake-up at the back, boy!

The event was described as follows

"As new commissioning partners begin to embed best practice within their organisations, now is the time to transform the commissioning process with the involvement of the VCSE sector in designing and delivering potential services.  This conference showcases pioneering case studies on integrated commissioning, demonstrating social return on investment, creating transparent and collaborative processes and building capacity within the third sector to access outcome-based contracts."

Attendees will benefit by developing a greater understanding of
  • Integrating commissioning to reduce duplication and provide a holistic, more person centred service

  • All for the bargain price of £350 per delegate.

    I am pleased to say that the fee does include a "sandwich lunch facilitating networking opportunities with other engagers in the VCSE sector."



    Hat-tip to Cllr Nicholas Rogers (Tunbridge Wells) for this gem. Similar examples of Third Sector psychobabble always welcome!
