In 2018, our Blue Light Summits provided crucial strategic insight to UK emergency services to help them enhance their innovation practices and processes. With guest speakers from Lancashire Constabulary, the Metropolitan Police, Home Office, NHS, Manchester Business School and other, the events showcased the remarkable innovations achieved by these teams and provided frameworks for other services to do the same. The response to Blue Light has been overwhelming, with requests for more events coming in both from previous attendees and other government agencies.

With public services budgets stretched greater than ever, there is a growing need for innovative solutions deeply felt by organisations around the country. Here at Idea Drop, we’re proud to be part of the solution, providing them with a platform to collaborate, share ideas and learn how innovation can help organisations create a better services environment for the public and for themselves.

That’s precisely why the Blue Light Summit has grown into the Public Sector Innovation Summit 2019. Let’s take a look at five great reasons to attend our next summit on the 18th of June.

Learn from highly successful innovation specialists

Our partners for this year’s summits are Amazon Web Services and Chaucer Consulting – two of UK’s most innovative companies. The speakers will help us bridge the gap between the public service sector and corporate innovation, sharing the secrets that have driven some of the capital’s most successful companies.

Sharpen your skills in innovation workshops

You’ll get hands-on experience with the tools and processes used to generate game-changing innovations in the corporate world. Join our workshop on Creative Problem Solving Techniques to explore new ways to tackle major challenges and generate ideas.

Share knowledge and collaborate across the public services sector

The Blue Light Summits received attention from all corners of the emergency services industry. This year, our guests will be even more diverse, with visitors from government bodies, NHS trusts, local councils and more. Our open networking environment gives you the chance to explore collaborative projects and learn new strategies from experienced innovators.

Discover strategies to help you mitigate budget cuts

The public services sector is constantly being asked to do more with less. Organisations like Kent and Essex Police have used innovation processes to help relieve the pressure of austerity measures. The Public Sector Innovation Summit is their opportunity to share this great work with you.
