DTA releases program for Digital Summit 2020

The Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has released the program for the Digital Summit 2020. The event presents an opportunity to get practical insights from international and homegrown digital leaders and practitioners, and to reflect on how government and industry have adapted to change in 2020.

Presenters will provide practical insights on how to drive transformation in a rapidly changing world and how some of the biggest organisations in the world are delivering digital transformation. Attendees will also have the opportunity to engage with peers and explore new ways to understand user needs and how to response with contemporary digital services.

Media personality, radio host and presenter of the ABC’s The New Inventors James O’Loghlin will host and present the event, and the presentations of the Australian Government Digital Awards.

Per the program, summit registration will feature a range of government speakers, including the Hon Stuart Robert MP, Rebecca Skinner (CEO, Services Australia), Peter Woolcott AO (APS Commissioner) and Randall Brugeaud (CEO, DTA). Registration will also include insights from international speakers such as Professor Beth Simone Noveck (US) and Jim Grubb (US), and Australian thought leaders such as Stephen Scheeler and Dr Catherine Ball.

Summit registration will also include an international panel on government and digital identity hosted by the DTA’s Jonathan Thorpe, with guests from Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. Additionally, case studies will demonstrate the positive outcomes of human-centred design methods and service delivery, while on-demand content will be available each day.

On-demand content will showcase the positive outcomes of industry and government working together to respond to recent crises, including the COVID-19 pandemic, the mental health of frontline workers, cybersecurity and blockchain, and digital transformation and how it is changing the way we work. Attendees will be able to view all sessions on demand for 12 months after the Digital Summit.

Attendees can also register for live and interactive workshops that will cover topics tuned to the summit’s four themes, including Designing for Future Decision-Making, Digital Ethics, Agile Methodology, Cloud, Designing for Data and Working from Home.

The workshops will enable attendees to build their digital capability, develop skills and expand their digital transformation toolkit. Each workshop is limited to 30 people, to provide the best experience for each attendee. Participants will need to register for each workshop separately when registering for the Digital Summit.

The DTA will also present the Australian Government Digital Awards as part of the summit. The awards will be on 10, 12 and 17 November, with the DTA to publish finalists soon.

As part of the Digital Summit, attendees will have a complete virtual experience, engaging with exhibitors and sponsors by visiting virtual booths to have chats or meetings. Attendees can also network and communicate with other attendees through the DTA’s event portal and Digital Summit app.
