Tue, 26/11/2013 - 18:00 - 20:30

Second Oatcake Camp, being held at the YMCA North Staffordshire in the heart of Stoke.

If you missed it the first time round, or made it and liked what went on, then sign up to come along now. It's a chance to learn things, share ideas and meet new folk while having a cuppa. It's informal and anyone is welcome to come along.

There's a cracking line up with two of Stoke's finest and a Staffordian born and bred. No powerpoint, just good topics, debate and discussion.

There'll be talk about all things public sector, communities, social media or digital. There's three sessions, where you have the chance to talk, ask questions, listen or offer up ideas. They're a friendly bunch offering tea, coffee, cake and even some oatcakes to take away this time.

You can grab a brew from 6pm and it officially kicks off at 6.30pm on Tuesday 26 November and finishes at 8.30pm. Here's what theyre covering on the night:

How can local institutions be #morelikepeople?

Taking Liam Barrington-Bush's new crowdfunded book 'Anarchists in the Boardroom' as a starting point, Clare White will lead a discussion about how we can diversify access to power, connect excluded communities and build smarter cities and villages.

In 2013, is innovation in the public sector dying?

With budgets being cut and jobs being lost, it's never been harder to think creatively. But what are the ingredients needed to innovate? And do you and your team have them?
