A rolling programme of seminars is being staged to tackle new threats such as cyber risks and stress in the workplace. They will also examine the opportunities to be gained from partnership working, and the introduction of better corporate governance, bench marking and auditing systems.

The next seminar will be held at Leicester City council's offices on July 16.
