More than 250 people will be heading to Shrewsbury tomorrow (Monday) to discuss how digital media can improve the way your organisations communicate with residents and deliever services.
The way public services are delivered is rapidly changing, mainly due to advances in digital technology, a massive growth in social media and major reductions in Government funding.
Councils and other organisations are starting to deliver services in new, innovative and more cost-effective ways, using technology to profoundly change the relationship between the citizen and the state.
Shropshire Council is hosting the ‘Digital Futures’ event at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury, to discuss how digital and social media is changing the way organisations connect with their customers and residents.
The event is aimed at councillors and public sector workers, as well as any organisations with an interest in social media and the digital future.
Speakers include Nick Jones, who is responsible for the Prime Minister and Cabinet Office’s digital communications; Justin Griggs, head of policy and development at the National Association of Local Councils (NALC); and Carrie Bishop, a director at FutureGov, which works with local government to create better, cheaper public services using technology and design thinking.
The event is now fully booked, but parts will be streamed live and you can also join in online too.
