Government 2.0: The Future of Public Services

The public sector has made great strides in innovating to deliver services to the people of British Columbia. However, there are still challenges ahead as people’s expectations grow through their use of digital tools in other parts of their daily lives, from ordering online shopping to managing bank accounts and subscribing to watch the latest movies. How can the public sector match these experiences when delivering services, and most importantly how can it build trust and keep these services secure? This conference will provide a platform on how innovation, digital strategies, and the seamless implementation of technology can redefine the public sector landscape. Hear from industry pioneers, thought leaders, and innovators, and unlock the potential to create more efficient and future-ready government services.

Explore innovative approaches, disruptive technologies, and pioneering case studies that are revolutionizing the public sector and learn how to apply them within your organization. Dive into data-driven decision-making, digital transformation, effective governance, and understand how to harness the potential of technology to optimize service delivery. Discover actionable insights for successful technology adoption, overcoming challenges, and how to build a culture of innovation.

Connect with peers, thought leaders, and experts from across the public sector landscape, fostering collaboration and partnerships that drive positive change. Unlock tomorrow’s potential today. Secure your spot now and become an agent of change for a more efficient, responsive public sector which will improve the experience of your colleagues, employees and most importantly the people of British Columbia.
