Countdown starts to major September digital public sector event

September 15th, Business Design Centre, London: don’t deprive you and your team of a rare chance to access invaluable informed comment and guidance on the next steps in e-government

Posted 13 July 2017 by

Is September 15th blacked out in your diary for Think Digital Government 2017?

If it isn’t, you could really hamper your team’s chance of success in building the digitally-powered public services of tomorrow.

The good news is it’s not too late to secure your place at this major public sector IT event, which is bringing together stakeholders, practitioners and informed expert commentators under one roof to attempt to ‘redefine the role of digital’ in e-government going forward.

Confirmed speakers for the day, the organisers tell us, now include:

Central government digital leaders

Aaron Powell Chief Digital Officer, NHS Blood and Transplant

John Seglias Group Chief Digital and Information Officer, DEFRA

Paul Maltby Director of Data Projects, Department of Communities and Local Government

Annette Sweeney Head of GDS Academy, GDS

Kit Collingwood-Richardson Deputy Director, DWP

Holly Ellis Digital, Data & Technology Profession, Director of Capability, GDS


Gary Barnett Head of End User Advisory, Public Sector, at GlobalData (formerly Kable)

Daniel Thornton Programme Director, Institute for Government (IfG)

These sector heavyweights will be discussing their front-line experiences in everything from Brexit and its likely impact on the sharp end of policy implementation to real-world digital transformation success to how to deal with GDPR to what we could do to improve the take up of G-Cloud (see the full agenda here).

September may seem far-off as a busy school year ends and thoughts turn to sandcastle-building and jetting off for a well-deserved break.

But September 15th is actually only nine weeks tomorrow…

So please – don’t risk missing out on this unique chance of accessing genuine insight, and look to secure your place at Think Digital Government 2017 today, which is free if you are a qualified pubic sector professional.

Enjoy your vacation if you can take one – but see you on September 15th afterwards!
