Public sector performance management seminar at Queen's

A series of cutting-edge management seminars offered by Queen's University Belfast as part of its Professional Development programme for local senior managers is set to continue this autumn.

With public sector accountability very much on the agenda as the review of local government takes place, it is timely that an intensive full-day seminar in the business and management series will focus on performance measurement in the public sector.

Noel Hyndman, Professor of Management Accounting within the Queen's School of Management and Economics, will lead the seminar on Friday 11 November. A Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, Professor Hyndman was awarded a PhD for his research in accounting for not-for-profit organisations, has published widely in the area and provided consultancy support and training for a range of public sector bodies.

Commenting on the series, James Bradley, Head of the Queen's School of Management and Economics said: "The business and management seminar series is the result of an innovative partnership between my own School and the Institute of Lifelong Learning within the School of Education, and illustrates Queen's University's aim of knowledge transfer to fuel economic growth and development."

For further information on the business and management seminar series contact the Institute of Lifelong Learning on 028 9097 3536 or visit the website at www.qub.ac.uk/ill.
