This year’s Digital Summit attendees will hear from a number of Australian Public Service leaders, including Services Australia head Rebecca Skinner and APS commissioner Peter Woolcott.
Hosted by the Digital Transformation Agency, the Digital Summit 2020 will bring together digital thought leaders and practitioners to consider how to adapt, engage and deliver world leading digital transformation.
Early-bird registrations for the virtual summit opened on Friday. As part of the event, a range of keynote speeches, plenaries, interactive workshops and case-studies will take place across four days from November 10-19.
Four themes — disruption and change, human-centred services, leadership and people, and technology and data — will be explored at the summit. The Digital Awards winners will also be announced.
As part of day one, government services and NDIS minister Stuart Robert will deliver a keynote address, while speakers will reflect on how 2020 has changed ways of working, and accelerated digital transformation.
Day two attendees will hear from a number of experts including Rebecca Skinner, and will be prompted to explore the concept of human-centred design as well as strategies for understanding user needs.
Emerging and established leaders, including Digital CEO founder Stephen Scheeler, will discuss leadership in a digital age on day three, while day four attendees will hear from DTA CEO Randall Brugeaud. Joined by government and industry experts, Brugeaud will discuss how technology and data is enabling the delivery of better services for the digital age.
In the lead up to the event, Brugeaud noted that collaboration was a “key enabler” to drive the digital transformation of government services.
“The Digital Summit 2020 will showcase the innovative ways government and industry are collaborating to deliver both during the pandemic and in a post-COVID world,” he said.
Members of the APS Digital Professional Stream, and digital leaders and practitioners have all been encouraged to attend.
