GOVIS 2018

“Digital Evolution”

Thursday 21 – Friday 22 June 2018

Shed 6, Wellington


Save the date!

We are pleased to announce that next year’s GOVIS 2018 Conference has now been confirmed for Thursday 21 and Friday 22, June 2018 and will be held at TSB Auditorium (Shed 6).

Please mark these dates in your diary now!


This years conference  theme is “Digital Evolution”

In the 2017 Digital Evolution Index, conducted by the Fletcher School at Tufts University in Massachusetts, New Zealand was singled out as one of the top digital economies.  Our strong digital economy was attributed to the positive combination of infrastructure, incubating start-ups, cultural commitment to innovation as well as government support.

We will be inviting speakers to share their experiences and stories to help others learn how we can successfully contribute to our and New Zealand’s continued digital evolution.   As a little food for thought, spend some time considering some of the challenges:

  • The Digital Evolution Index – it measures our progress. How do we strengthen the drivers and remove the barriers?

  • How can digital solutions tackle social challenges?

  • What capability changes will this require? What new skillsets will we need to develop?

  • What is the social impact on roles as automation increases?
