Digital Government conference gets a collective ‘thumbs up’ from the sector

Last week’s Think Digital Government is being seen as a highly useful day by attendees

Posted 16 February 2017 by

Verdicts are coming in thick and fast about last Friday’s much-anticipated Think Digital Government conference in London, where public sector ICT stakeholders right across the public sector buyer and seller community met to debate our post-Brexit future.

And the good news is, even if our future might be a bit more complicated than some would like – the event itself certainly met expectations and is being seen as a successful day out of many a busy diary.

Here are just a few of the comments the organisers of the one-day conference and mini-expo, THINK Digital Partners, have been sent so far:

I thought it was a really helpful and very interesting experience that set out many of the current issues in a range of areas. The speakers were good, well prepared and the timing/pace of the whole day worked well. On a personal level, I am never very sure about ‘fireside chats’ and their output in terms of picking up useful information. That said, they were very well chaired and were a ‘change of air’. Plus, I thought the venue was excellent.

Research Impact and Intelligence Officer

I attend quite a few IT conferences and THINK Digital is certainly one of the best in terms of both its presenters, content and the format of the day.

IT Portfolio Manager

I found the topics and the speakers both very interesting – they managed to keep my attention throughout the whole conference, and in fact I would have liked many of the speakers to continue talking about their topics for longer. The panel moderators/chair also did a good job.   

Business Analyst – Digital Transformation

The content was great, speakers were very insightful.  I also liked it being held on a Friday – networking and learning was a great way to end the week!    

Technology Manager

I very much enjoyed the conference.  It covered all the important topics for me at this stage in my department’s transformation journey.

Commercial Capability Programme Manager

I enjoyed the conference. It was interesting to hear the views of others and learn from their experiences. I also liked it being on a Friday. I would also be keen to access the presentations from the day and share them with my team.

Head of IT

Next event details coming soon

So it seems the promise of a coming together to share useful ideas about the next few months and years for Whitehall, digital transformation, and the impact of Brexit on the public sector, was successfully deliver.

THINK Digital would like to thank all participants, speakers and delegates, as well as its sponsors and supporters.

Details of the next Think Digital Government event are believed to be being finalised right now – we’ll share that data as soon as we have it.

Presentations are available from the organisers if you would like them – please email them here matt.stanley@thinkdigitalpartners.com.

Coverage of the event is being shared on this site and our content partner diginomica/government and Government Computing, too, please note.
