Connect 2020: Public Sector Technology Conference

Public Sector Technology Connect Image

COVID-19 and the resulting lockdown changed the way many organisations use technology. Holyrood’s popular virtual Connect 2020 conference, which took place virtually in October, was a chance to get together and discuss new challenges and opportunities in public sector tech.

The event brought together experts from the Scottish Government, Socitm and other industry-leading organisations to explore the latest issues in public sector technology. With a focus on the following themes:

  • Collaboration: The public sector works more efficiently through collaboration and sharing best practice. Gain valuable insight from organisations that have tackled and overcome issues and challenges similar to those you’re experiencing.
  • People First: Digital transformation is nothing without people. Learn how to involve staff and users in service design to ensure they buy into your new technologies and have the skills necessary to use them
  • Sparking the Next Wave of Innovation: Risk taking and learning from failure is the most effective way to innovate. But is difficult with the scrutiny faced by the public sector. Learn how to create an environment where risks can be taken in a measured way.

Sessions from the conference are now available on-demand, providing an opportunity to learn from leading experts and hear practical examples of good practice. Holyrood Connect is Scotland’s leading provider of content focused on public sector technology.
