Delivering Digital Transformation: The Future of Public Services

Open Forum Events would like to invite you to our Delivering Digital Transformation Conference taking place on the 13th July 2017 in London. The response we have had so far has been fantastic and we encourage you to register your place(s) today to ensure that you do not miss out as places at this conference are going quickly.
The digital revolution has made its mark on every industry of our globalised world, and has even found its way into academia. The limitless exchange of ideas, especially across international borders, may have once seemed like a distant dream, now such opportunities are more realistic than ever before. At the same time, however, policymakers must cope with challenging questions concerning rising costs, the expansion of online learning platforms, and which models of higher education will best educate future generations to be productive members of society. Join us at Delivering Digital Transformation: The Future of Public Services is designed to see the latest digital solutions and ways of workings to help meet the critical challenges ahead. This event will focus on how to deliver more accurate, faster service responses and put service users at the core as we reshape public services for the future.
