Nicola will be sharing an insight into her first year in her role as Chief Executive as well as her reflections, growing Suffolk’s economy, how the County Council works with business and future plans and challenges for the County. This is an excellent opportunity to hear from the Chief Executive of your county council, pose questions and share any view you may have.

About our speaker: 

Nicola Beach is the Chief Executive of Suffolk County Council and has been in post since May 2018. Before joining Suffolk Nicola was Executive Director for Infrastructure and Environment at Essex County Council, where she developed an ambitious agenda for sustainable growth and environmental services, to meet the needs of a growing county.

Nicola’s previous roles include Chief Executive of Braintree District Council, a position she held from January 2013 to July 2017, leading an innovative investment and improvement programme to deliver financial stability for the council. Nicola started her career in recycling, waste and environmental management, but over her 24 years in local government has worked in many senior roles in Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and now Suffolk.  Nicola is also the joint chairman of the East of England Branch of Solace (society of local authority chief executives).

Nicola is a strong advocate of women’s groups and diversity in the workplace, mentoring others on an informal basis and continuing to support the women’s springboard programme in Essex. Nicola regularly gives leadership talks to a range of organisations to share her experience of leadership in the increasingly unpredictable and complex public sector.
