Virtual Event: Public Sector Innovation Show USA - Mountain & North Central Region

Building a modern, agile and adaptive public service

Wednesday, October 28, 2020
Complimentary for public sector employees from Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming

Agenda Overview:

Public sector innovation is needed now more than ever before. Using new approaches – from policy design to service delivery, new technologies and better use of data – to improve the performance and responsiveness of the public sector is critical if we are to bounce back from the recent challenges we have all faced.

To recover faster and better, we need to collaborate, share ideas and accelerate innovation in the public sector, ultimately to delivery better services to all stakeholders. That is what this day will be about.

The Public Sector Network’s Public Sector Innovation Series will provide its own information sharing platform to equip attendees with the ideas and inspiration needed to continue innovating in this newfound way of working.
