PublicTechnology Live returns in 2024

Thank you to all who attended PublicTechnology Live 2023 on on 1 March 2023.

In particular we thank all the speakers who gave their time and knowledge to ensure the event was a great success and our sponsors for supporting the event.

PublicTechnology Live is where public sector digital, data and IT professionals meet to advance tech transformation, from strategy to implementation.

Delivering innovation and improving resilience

More than a decade on from the widespread digitisation of public services, exemplified by the work of the Government Digital Service, the coming years will bring another generation of transformation. This next phase will be characterised by new technologies such as artificial intelligence, as well as the growth in sharing and use of data.

All of which will provide major opportunities for smarter and more personalised digital services, as well as providing public bodies with real-time insights and support for policymaking. But there will also be significant challenges: operational; cultural; ethical; and financial.

PublicTechnology Live 2023 brought together a content-driven, interactive programme supported by C-level speakers from across the breadth of the public sector to provide a comprehensive view of priorities and challenges, and help support attendees in delivering innovation and improving resilience.

Our 2023 speakers included:

Professor Simon Hepburn
Chief Executive Officer
UK Cyber Security Council

Rob Holtom
Executive Director Corporate Digital, Data and Technology, Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)

Megan Lee
Chief Executive, Central Digital and Data Office (CDDO)

Giles Hartwright
Government Chief Technology Officer, Cabinet Office
