Innovation and digital transformation in Government to be discussed at Canberra Summit


SYDNEYJuly 27, 2018 — Governments around the world are being asked to provide greater digital services to citizens and improve their online experiences and interactions with government agencies.

However, a recent Senate enquiry* into Digital Transformation within the Australian Federal Government highlighted several key challenges that agencies are facing on their transformation journey. These include cyber security, privacy, user diversity, systems architecture, leadership and skilling.

Another highlight will be Adrian Turner, the CEO of Data61, presenting on how Australia can grasp the $315bn opportunity that digital innovation is estimated to bring to our economy over the next decade.

There are over fifty presenters including Genevieve Bell, Distinguished Professor, Australian National University, Director, 3A Institute, and Senior Fellow, IntelMohan Aiyaswami, Chief Technology Officer, Department of DefenceJerome Reid, Group Captain, Director Plan Jericho, Royal Australian Air Force and Anthony Murfett, Deputy Head, Australian Space Agency to name but a few.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
