    • Lean! Libraries as Customer Value Catalysts 21 Nov 13, Far Cotton REC Centre, Northampton #leanlibraries Speakers Dr Paul Blantern, Chief Executive, Northamptonshire County Council Paul has been chief executive of Northamptonshire County Council since 1st June 2010. He joined Northamptonshire County Council in 2008 as Corporate Director for Customer and Community Services where he was responsible for a wide range of customer–facing services including libraries, country parks, adult learning, fire & rescue and the customer service centre as well as support services such as HR and IT. Before joining Northamptonshire, and following a career in the private sector, Paul was Director for Customer Services at Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council. Paul is passionate about working with partners to ensure excellent services are provided to customers and communities in the county. He was the instigator behind the council’s innovative shared services partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council, now known as LGSS. Launched in October 2010, LGSS is one of the largest shared service ventures in the UK. Paul has lived in the county for many years, is married with two teenage sons, and lives in a village in east Northamptonshire. In his spare time, he canoes, plays table tennis for his local town and takes an active role in his local community. Andy Appleyard, Head of Customer Service and Information Services, British Library Andy Appleyard is Head of the Document Supply Service and Customer Services at the British Library. He also has a corporate role of leading on Continuous Improvement activities which over the last 6 years have generated over 500 team-based (kaizen) improvement activities. During his time working for Toyota Nippondenso as Head of Quality then Head of Operations he was indoctrinated to Lean Management (or the Toyota Production System as it was known). Andy is currently looking to build public service lean networks such that the tools can be used more widely to leverage expertise for the benefit of the whole sector. Julie Blaisdale, Assistant Director - Library, Customer and Community Services, North Yorkshire County Council From 1980, Julie worked for the London Borough of Camden, starting as a Peripatetic Children’s Librarian before taking up a number of management roles. She moved to the London Borough of Islington in 1987 where she was the Senior Manager with responsibility for both Finsbury and Islington’s Central Libraries. In 1990, she migrated north to Cleveland County Council as Group Librarian for Grangetown, serving some of the most deprived areas in the country and from there went on to take the lead for services for prisoners, older people and people with disabilities. In 1996, following local government reorganisation, Julie moved to Hartlepool Borough Council where she was Borough Librarian until 2001 when she took on the role of Head of Libraries, Archives and Arts for North Yorkshire County Council. Since this time to date, Julie’s leadership responsibilities have gone on to include Registration and Coroners Services and since July 2013 Customer Services.

    • Lean! Libraries as Customer Value Catalysts 21 Nov 13, Far Cotton REC Centre, Northampton #leanlibraries Barbara Leigh, Principal Librarian, Northamptonshire County Council Barbara has worked in a library environment throughout her career, and has amassed a substantial wealth of experience in public, academic, and specialist libraries – especially about frontline leadership: she was a library manager at 19. As Principal Librarian for the Northampton and Wellingborough Area, Barbara has transformed and leads the flagship Central Library in Northampton, including the establishment of our local studies ‘Discover’ centre. She introduced ‘lean thinking’ into our libraries, forming and leading a ‘lean thinking team’ that has saved 25,000 staff-hours to date. Our online resource investment has doubled under Barbara’s customer-centred approach and use of resources has exponentially increased. Barbara also led on the development and delivery of quality customer service standards across the service, an area she continues to lead across the county. She is in the final stages of attaining the CIPD Certificate in Training Practice. Craig Menzies, Macmillan Service Delivery Manager, Glasgow Life Craig Menzies has been in his post within the Macmillan @ Glasgow Libraries for approximately 18 months. Craig’s current post involves the strategic development and co-ordination of up to 12 Cancer Information & Support Services within the North West of Glasgow. The post takes great emphasis on creating strong partnerships between Macmillan, Glasgow Libraries, the NHS, and a number of other organisations, with the joint goal of ensuring that no matter where you live in Glasgow you will have access to cancer information and support in your local community. Having originally studied Physiology and Sports Science at Glasgow University, Craig’s keen interest in public health management took him away from the research dominated field of sports science and into the NHS Graduate Management Programme. Whilst studying his Post Graduate Diploma in Public Health Management and Leadership, Craig managed several NHS and Local Authority services including Children & Adolescents mental health services and various Outpatients services such as ENT, Cardiology and Screening services. Following his graduation, Craig secured a job as Project Manager within the NHS before returning home to take up the post of Macmillan Service Delivery Manager. Janice Malone, Macmillan Programme Manager, Glasgow Life Janice Malone has a wide and varied career in Public Health & Health Improvement, starting out in Health Promotion in Ayrshire, Scotland not far from the rural mining village where she grew up. An appetite and drive to improve access to health information transported her to Glasgow where she has lived and worked for the past 13 years. Much of her career has been spent within the NHS, before moving out into the voluntary sector for a time and becoming interested in the field of cancer information. Janice set up the pilot Macmillan Cancer Information & Support service in Glasgow’s East End in 2009, and has led the change in thinking across Glasgow around how, where and when cancer information and support can and should be offered to its citizens. This service, different to many services Macmillan had funded in the past was centred around a volunteer-led approach to nonclinical information and support. The service was and continues to be a resounding success.
