Keynote speaker topic – The Future of Government


Around the world, governments at all levels are facing severe challenges, yet also abundant new opportunities to support the development of prosperous societies. Demographic shifts, the transformation of work and organisations, increasing social expectations, and massive connectivity are transforming society and business. The role of government is shifting away from service delivery towards becoming an enabling platform for value creation across society. Citizen power can be expressed through structured community engagement, while legislation must become agile to keep pace with a swiftly-changing world. The potential is for more open, participatory government that serves citizens far more effectively and efficiently than it does today. Effective leadership and governance that support transformation will help build a future in which governments are relevant and truly enable flourishing states and nations.
