I am the alt textThe countdown’s started to what’s shaping up to be the biggest and best G-Cloud and digital public services conference of the year – so if you haven’t booked a place yet, it’s probably worth a diary check today.

The event is Think Digital Government 2016, the flagship event of the company behind the Think Digital Partners site, Think Digital Partners.

When we last talked about the one-day conference, scheduled for Tuesday, 13 December 2016, at London’s Design Centre in Islington, we were able to tell you about some of the core themes of the show.

These centered – and still do – on the core drivers of reform and change for the UK public sector ICT buyer and seller, from the implications of Brexit and data sharing to the idea of digital value propositions in government computing.

Now, we can add some detail to the picture, as more speakers have been confirmed as coming along on the day to either present, take part in the scheduled top-level panels, share their expertise and be ready for your questions.

The confirmed speaker roster now includes:

  • Analyst Kable’s Jessica Figueras and her colleague Gary Barnett
  • The National Audit Office’s Director for Transformation Max Tse
  • Former Cabinet Office Policy maker Paul Waller
  • Expert in data protection legislation Gilbert Hill, chair of the data council at the UK’s leading body for digital marketers, the DMA
  • Head of Digital Architecture & Cybersecurity at HM Courts & Tribunals Service Adam Gwinnett.

THINK Events told us it’s also just confirming the participation of senior central government figures including leadership players at GDS, the Ministry of Justice, the Office of National Statistics (ONS) and Department of Work and Pensions, as well as other IT decision makers at major Government Departments.

The news that so many significant users of The Digital Marketplace, as well as other builders of the next wave of digital public services, are participating so actively at the conference underlines its importance as the one major G-Cloud event the community needs to be at this year, say commentators.

“We’re really excited about Think Digital Government 2016,” confirmed Think Digital Partners Director Matt Stanley.

“Together with our partners at independent IT analysts Kable, we have created an agenda that addresses the important issues concerning public sector cloud and digital technologies.

“Delegates will benefit from great analyst insight, hear in depth about future plans regarding the government frameworks – plus learn from the examples of best practice case studies delivered, with no PR ‘filter’, on the day.”

Stanley added that over 100 delegates from across nearly 50 central and local government agencies have already confirmed their attendance at the December conference.

The event is open for registration, with places FREE for public sector professionals.

Make sure you have a secured ticket for Think Digital Government 2016 then, to make sure of your front-row way of seeing what the major figures in the UK digital public sector are thinking, doing – and worrying about.
