Come and celebrate with Mosaic in Yorkshire!
Join us on Tuesday 9 June to help celebrate the achievements of our students, schools and mentors in Yorkshire and to thank you for your support.
The evening will celebrate the importance of mentoring and in particular mosaic’s mentors, their hard work and commitment to the young people we support as well as recognising the hard work Mosaic’s network, teachers and supporters continue to dedicate.
Keynote speaker: Tom Riordan – Chief Executive, Leeds City Council
The youngest ever Chief Executive of Leeds City Council, Tom has helped set ambitious Best City and ‘Best Council’ goals. Together with the Leader, and working across all political groups, since 2010 he has overseen £145million of efficiency savings, pioneer status for the city’s health and social care work, transformation of the council’s Children’s Services, and one of the leading devolution and city deals in the UK for the Leeds city region. Tom also contributed to delivery of the 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ and is currently supporting Leeds’ bid to become the European Capital of Culture in 2023.
Tom has come full circle from a North Yorkshire state education, via Oxford University, a Civil Service fast stream career on international environmental policy to leading the Regional Development Agency Yorkshire Forward.
Ever forward-looking, Tom is a member of the UK government’s Smart Cities Forum and drove the Commission that set out in 2012 a new “civic enterprise blueprint” for the Future of Local Government.
We will also be treated to a special performance by one of the schools Mosaic works with!
Canapes and Drinks will be served. Please note arrival time is 6pm for a strict 6:30pm start.
