The world is changing rapidly. New services and technologies have fundamentally changed the way people see public services. Rising demands, changing expectations with shrinking budgets require bold choices to be made. New ways of thinking. New ways of working. A fresh perspective on how organisations should operate.
FutureGov will build a business case for digital and design to be at the heart of the transformation work you're leading. One that spells out how radical reinvention can improve services while meeting the demands of budget constraints and rising service expectations at the same time.
Together we will explore a whole new kind of public service: one designed around citizens and built for the digital age. Through a series of keynotes, lightning talks and open discussions that you can shape, we'll share some real-life examples from both the private and public sector. Leaving you confident and ready to start the journey yourself.
