Thought leadership
  • Jos Creese, UK expert in the digital transformation of local government is coming to our conference to share the wealth of knowledge he has built up during his many years working in IT for many British councils.
  • Like many councils, City of Ballarat is facing pressure to provide more services, cope with increasing demand, and meet citizens’ expectations for digital transactions; all while keeping rate rises low. Martijn Schroder is their digital transformation manager, and he’ll share how they managed these competing pressures.
  • Smart cities are great – but what if you aren’t a city? Russell Bennett from the award-winning South Grampians Shire Council, a rural council to the west of Melbourne, faced this exact issue.
  • Air New Zealand has cemented itself as one of the world’s leading airlines – so how did they design and implement customer-centric services, and what role did technology have to play?
  • The era of big data is here, but how are you going to make the most of it? Auckland University’s Shaun Hendy will present amazing case studies, including how his team tracked the flu across New Zealand using cell phone data
  • People are often pointing out the limitations of AI – one of which is the ability to read emotions. So, what would happen if AI gained emotional intelligence?
  • He doesn’t do anything by halves. Whether it’s culture, innovation, disruption, or ideas vs execution, Robitt Hollis is a dynamic speaker who will get you thinking outside the box.
  • Cybersecurity is crucial to respond to the clear and present danger posed by ransomware, viruses, phishing and more. Paul Ash, Director at the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet’s National Cyber Policy Office will address how at risk local government is.
