In a previous life


Here is a resting place for some material that I (largely)  produced for Hertfordshire County Council while working on economic development  and/or that I feel ought to be accessible in order to provide insights into the way those of us working on the subject saw things at the time and presented them to a wider readership.

The Hertfordshire Works Economic Development Partnership occupied a narrow space between the Labour government's 2007 ​Sub-national Re​view of Economic Development ​and the abolition of the Regional Development Agencies and eventual institution of the Lcal Economic Partnerships  by the coalition government that took office in 2010. It held a visioning workshop in July 2009 for which I produced the following succinct summary of the state of (economic) play in Hertfordshire: 09 07 06 Herts Works Visioning Conference.pdf​ .​​
