The Digital Transformation & Data in Government NZ Summit is an exclusive invitation-only event that brings together digital transformation leaders across New Zealand's public sector to deliver better citizen outcomes.   
With the shift towards personalised services and building a more inclusive digital future, it is critical that the public sector leverage digital opportunities and infrastructure emerging out of the pandemic to modernise and transform the public service.
Join us this May to learn how senior government leaders are tackling whole-of-government transformation, the digital divide, agility in innovation, data sharing, and stewardship to improve the digital future of Aotearoa.     
  • Hear from fellow Digital Nations, the UK and Canada, about their latest digital and service delivery initiatives to improve citizen outcomes  
  • Lessons learned from more than 20 public sector organisations on how they are advancing digital collaboration and policy agility through and beyond COVID-19 
  • Uncover how to build senior digital leadership capability – is this framed as a role or an outcome?  
  • Multiple interactive sessions on supporting enablement through digital technologies, innovation, and digital inclusion  
  • Actionable insights on data governance ecosystem, ethics, intelligence, and sovereignty  
Mark the dates in your calendar! Take part in the evolving conversation and converge with over 200 leading public sector digital and technology leaders to create an equitable digital Aotearoa. Limited spots available.
