Digital Strategy – 13th April

Toby Bellwood

A more inclusive digital style of government with agile project management techniques such as discovery process maps, data wrangling, mystery shoppers, lowest cost proof of concept, fail fast, Trello roadmaps and crowdsourced policy development builds on the right KPIs, meaningful CPD and undervalued taxpayer goodwill and now the key difference in any government league table…

The April event will include an informal insight into a G7 digital strategy with Toby Bellwood, previously the Australian national lead on international engagement via the global Open Government Partnership and more recently a national lead via the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to accelerate internal digital transformation and to prioritise, surface and visualise untapped public information to help maximise productivity in the private sector or maximise social impact in the voluntary sector.

His interview at Code for Australia highlights that anyone that knows Excel can contribute to economic development or to meaningful social impact.

Smart Buildings – March 10th 2017

Smart buildings and offices face challenges including poor employee and member reporting functionality, unauthorised entries, impersonal front-of-house service, lack of synchronicity between decentralised premises, functions and poor visitor management. All of these pose a threat not only to security, but also to the level of employee satisfaction, as well as a duty of care in high rise buildings.

Paul Sheedy, CEO, Reward Technology Limited is a leading authority on smart city technology with registered patents and trade secrets and unique insights on related subjects such as loyalty schemes, retail beacons, Internet of Things and digital id cards. He is based at Level39 in Canary Wharf, the largest tech accelerator in Europe and a successful exporter via UK Department for International Trade trade missions.

The speaker will explore the technical and human factors and then host questions and answers from the audience.

When: Friday, March 10, 2017 – Doors open 1730** (for start at 1800) to 1930 (BST)

Where: Barrule Suite, 5th Floor, Tynwald (enter via public entrance on Finch Road)

** Networking opportunity, with complimentary soft drinks and light refreshments, from 1730 – 1800.
