Idea Drop have partnered with AWS and Chaucer for our 2019 innovation summit designed to connect, inspire and showcase the best innovation projects and initiatives across public sector organisations.
About the event
In a changing world, the smartest organisations understand the power and importance of innovation. Public sector organisations are under continued and increasing pressure to do more with less, to better connect and engage with every stakeholder and to tackle macro global challenges such as climate change, economic uncertainty and migration. Public sector organisations have suffered from a historic perception as being slow to innovate, influenced by the fact ideas often struggle to bubble up to the right executive sponsors to create impact and tangible results. Unlike their private sector counterparts, public sector organisations often don’t have the budgets, teams or roles devoted to innovation which means the pace of execution, development and action is often stifled. What can public sector organisations learn from private businesses?
This unique summit will bring together senior experts, leaders and representatives from across the public sector ecosystem with the aim of demonstrating the best innovation practices and showcasing how the fusion of technology, people and process can create powerful opportunities and change.
- Network and meet like-minded innovation experts from across the UK public sector organisations including police, fire and rescue, NHS, councils and government bodies.
- Discover the latest innovation case studies and their impact.
- Participate and influence the debate.
- Hands-on innovation workshop led by industry experts.
Who is it for?*
This summit will bring together senior public sector professionals to address innovation, digital transformation, the future of technology in public services and its vital role in the sector.
*Please note that we are accepting strictly only RSVP’s from public sector organisations. We reserve the right to refuse bookings from privately held companies.
