“Thank you for organising that Public Sector Network. It was a very valuable learning experience and fabulous on site! Well done to all. Great presentations across the board.”

Queensland Health

Welcome to a bold new era of public services.

2020 will go down as a year like no other. The Queensland Public Sector showed resilience as they were forced to think on the spot, remain agile, and act to do things differently in order to remain accessible to citizens amidst feelings of uncertainty and fear.

As we move out of the survival stage into recovery, the Queensland Government remains firmly focused on continuing to provide leading digital services to service a world class public sector. However, with a digital strategy well into its third year and a recent freeze on IT initiatives from the most current budget, the focus for Queensland will be on building and improving upon solutions that already exist; adapting to prosper in a changed world and creating the conditions for future success.

The Public Sector Innovation Show Queensland 2021 , in partnership with Ernst & Young will bring together leaders from across the state to collaborate, share their stories through case studies, keynotes, and panel discussions as they focus on delivering the agenda to unite and recover.

Register today and join your peers at the largest gathering of state government leaders
