Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Minnesota Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public sector and private sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit. Participants tell us they use inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations and their own career paths.

Topics Include:

Cybersecurity – The Holistic Approach
Government’s Quest for Talent
The Age of Disruption
Procurement – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Human-Centered Design
Collaboration, Anyone?
The Road to Smarter Communities
Blockchain – Closer than It Appears?
Geospatial, Geovisual and Geofantastic!
