Event overview

In a post-COVID world, most councils are working on a recovery strategy to survive, revive and thrive, with digital transformation at its core. Achieving whole-of-council digital transformation is key challenge, as it is more than just technology implementation.

Public Sector Network’s Local Government Executive Sessions bring together a small group of key senior public sector attendees from across local government to attend in person to network and connect in an intimate environment.

With a focus on collaboration, the event gives you the opportunity to meet with public sector leaders as they share their strategies for digital transformation to become more efficient and transparent, to contribute effectively to your council and its citizens.
