Public sector innovation on show in Canberra

The Public Sector Innovation Show is on again, to be held 26 March at the National Convention Centre, Canberra. Now in its fifth year, the show will bring together federal, state and local government agencies and statutory bodies to discuss the critical challenges of achieving a more innovative, transformative and sustainable public sector in Australia.

Supported by eight federal government departments and the Australian Cyber Security Centre, and bringing together more than 800 attendees, the Public Sector Innovation Show is the biggest annual gathering of public sector leaders in Australia.

Stay up to speed with the latest innovations in digital transformation, the future of work, process improvement, and the latest tools and technologies. Take away tangible and practical improvement strategies on how to meet the increasing demand for services and the changing needs and expectations of the population, while maintaining strong fiscal discipline.

We’ve arranged a SPECIAL 50% DISCOUNT for GovTech Review readers — simply use the code GTR50 when registering.

In attendance and giving special keynote presentations, will be three leading international experts:

  • Dr M Jae Moon, Department of Public Administration, Director, Institute for Future Government, Republic of Korea
  • Jose Clastornik, Executive Director of AGESIC, Government of Uruguay
  • Malcolm Harrison, former CEO, Crown Commercial Service, Cabinet Office and Group CEO, CIPS, United Kingdom

AGESIC is Uruguay’s e-government and information society agency. Jose Clastornik will explain how the body has made Uruguay a digital leader in the region, and the only country in Latin America and the Caribbean to break into the most advanced cohort of the UN’s 2018 e-government survey.

Malcolm Harrison joined the Cabinet Office of Her Majesty’s Government where he held the role of chief executive officer of the Crown Commercial Service, overseeing an annual spend of more than £13 billion.
