Kenneth Hogg is Director for Local Government and Communities in the Scottish Government, where he leads work on public service reform and democratic renewal.

Kenneth is particularly interested in bringing to life more participative approaches to government and public service, including enabling communities to have a greater say in changes about things that matter to them.

In that spirit, in 2015 Kenneth led the introduction of U.Lab Scotland – a blended online/real world public participation platform focussed on leading change aligned with a sense of the emerging future.

Kenneth has worked in public services for 25 years, and is a proud resident of Portobello.
