Event description

Description

In times of significant change, organisations need a 21st-century mindset.

We’re in a time of major transition in the world and in the sector. Facing unprecedented cuts, international change and increased expectations, we expect public service organisations to evolve into the organisations of the future. Modern services designed around the people who use them, supported by the best organisations. That means new ways of thinking, new ways of working and a fresh perspective on how we design for change.

Join FutureGov as we explore how we think radically differently to deliver public services that focus on creating lasting change with the best possible outcomes for citizens and local communities.

Through a series of regional events, we’re bringing together leaders and change makers. Join us for lightning talks, debates and table discussions, to make the case for radical transformation.
