The SOLGM Overseas Manager Exchange Programme is designed to provide local government managers with an opportunity to focus on their management development and career in local government through a short exchange with a partner manager in another country.
The Overseas Manager Exchange Programme is one of a range of SOLGM initiatives that provide leadership and development opportunities specifically tailored to the local government environment.
Many SOLGM members have benefited from the programme and through this professional, personal and cultural experience, most have gone back to their local authorities inspired and armed with a better perspective and increased knowledge of local government. Exchange recipients are surprised how similar the challenges faced by their overseas colleagues are to their own.
These Exchanges are offered with the support of our sponsors Marsh, Civic Financial Services and AskYourTeam.
Winners of the 2020/21 Exchanges are:
Each exchange involves a hosted visit to the destination country and the hosting of a reciprocal visitor from that country during the time period of the SOLGM Annual Summit.
