Executive Director Breakfast: Community trust and digital government in the post-COVID world.
The last two years have had a profound effect on the link between the quality of digital service delivery and citizen’s trust in government. Every time you checked in using a QR Code or put your vaccination certificate onto your phone you were trusting that governments would use your personal data to help individuals and protect our community.
New research from Salesforce and BCG has quantified just how much Australians’ trust in government is influenced by the quality of their digital service delivery experience, with more than 50% of respondents saying their experience of digital service delivery during the pandemic had contributed to increased levels of trust.
How can you build on this new foundation of trust to improve digital service delivery in the sector?
Join the conversation with other Executive Directors like you to discuss what this research means for you and the operations you manage.
Is this event right for you?
Are you a forward-thinking leader eager to discuss big ideas?
This invitation-only event is an opportunity for you to explore the future of digital service delivery with your peers in an open and frank discussion held under the Chatham House Rule.
What will you gain?
At a time when data-sharing is more widespread than ever, how can governments balance trust, personalisation and transparency of data use across its services?
In this Executive Director Breakfast, you will discuss:
- the rise of voluntary data-sharing and the customer expectation of more personalised services;
- the increased service flexibility and reduced costs of cloud-based digital platforms;
- improving the wellbeing and experience of employees;
- and most importantly, how governments can build on the trust of its citizens through meeting the customer’s expectation of data use.
This event is also an exclusive opportunity to build your professional networks and be involved in the kind of cross-sector collaboration that has proved essential during our state’s response to the challenges of recent years.
