Theresa May's foreword for The Parliamentary Review focuses on four 'grand challenges': "harnessing artificial intelligence and the data revolution; leading in changes to the future of mobility; meeting the challenges of our ageing society; and driving ahead the revolution in clean growth."
Many of the organisations who appear alongside her in the publication build on these challenges and shed light on some more unique ones. The end result is a fascinatingly diverse publication with a huge range of voices.
After a period of turmoil, Luton Town Football Club had fallen on bad times, dropping out of the Football League for five seasons and requiring complete financial, administrative, and cultural transformation being required.
Gary Sweet, CEO of LTFC 2020, explains in The Review not just how they overcome these challenges but how they saw and seized upon an opportunity to reinvent the way a football club interacts with and benefits the communities it represents.
"We were delighted to be chosen to be showcased in this year’s Parliamentary Review brochure," said Sweet. "We were selected as 'one of the experts in The Parliamentary Review 2018, showcasing best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector' on behalf of the DCMS. David Wilkinson, Michael Moran and I had a terrific evening at the gala reception to launch the review a couple of weeks ago at the Houses of Parliament. It's a real honour for the club to be included."
The UK has been historically acclaimed for its vibrant creative industries, and this year's Digital, Culture, Media and Sport edition of The Parliamentary Review proves that this renown is still well-deserved. It elaborates on concerns for the sector going forwards and the successes it has experienced over the last 12 months.
Daniel Yossman, executive director of The Parliamentary Review, has praised this year's Review as one not to be missed. "With representatives from across the country coming together to raise standards and share best practice, this year's Review provides some of the most shrewd reading for politicians, educators, and business leaders alike."
Writing in The Review, the prime minister says that "British politics provides ample material for analysis in the pages of The Parliamentary Review."
