GOVIS 2016 – Disruptive Innovation

Thanks to all our sponsors, speakers and delegates for making GOVIS 2016 and the 25th Anniversary celebrations an amazing success.  We’re working on the conference survey which will be out soon – please take the time to give us your feedback – the good, the bad and even the ugly.  Remember there are two tickets for GOVIS 2017 up for grabs.

Thanks to everyone who donated their backpack for a cause – as a result 163 school kids in the Wellington Region will be getting a new school bag.

Some other interesting statistics!  394 coffees and 400 juices were consumed in two days.

And one lucky delegate is being notified that they won the prize draw - the Disruptive Innovation labelled Panhead beer.

We’ll get the presentations and edited video footage on the website over the next few weeks however in the meantime a few photos…..

Come along to the first of our ‘Meet the CIOs’ series of lunchtime forums. In this series we will hear from information and technology leaders from across the public sector. We’ll find out how organisations are using technology and information to meet the needs of citizens and business. How are CIOs leading change? What lessons have they learned? And what does it all mean for information and technology professionals?

In February our CIO is Tracy Voice, Director Business Technology & Information Services at the Ministry for Primary Industries. Tracy’s going to tell us about some of the exciting new technology that MPI have been trying out, such as holograms and scanning technologies. She is also going to talk about her own leadership journey and the traits that have helped her to encourage innovation and culture change at MPI.

We have limited space for this free event. People who work for GOVIS member agencies will be given priority for places.

As usual, a light lunch will be provided.

Go to Eventbrite to register for this free event.
