GOVIS 2015

We've had a number of registrations already so thanks to those of you who trust GOVIS to bring you another inspiring conference.  We understand it's hard to sign up for the conference without knowing what the programme is so we're excited to announce the conference programme and our line-up of keynote speakers.

Keynote Announcements

The conference will be opened by the Minister of Internal Affairs, the Hon. Peter Dunne, Maria Robertson, Deputy Chief Executive, Service Delivery and Operations from Internal Affairs and the Government Chief Privacy Officer, Russell Burnard.  They'll share their perspectives on Building Trust.

Philip Poole, the Chief Marketing Manager from Whittaker's will share what it takes to become New Zealand's most trusted brand.  Over the last few years Whittaker's has ridden the waves of many controversies and has come out stronger than ever.  What can we learn from this local chocolate heavyweight that we can use to earn the trust of our citizens?  Who knows there may even be chocolate!

More information about our conference opening and keynote speakers is available on the GOVIS website.

Keynote Speaker - Brendon Lynch

Brendon Lynch

GOVIS is delighted to announce Brendon Lynch, the Chief Privacy Officer, Microsoft as a keynote speaker.  Based in the US, Brendon has global responsibility for Microsoft's privacy programme, including creating and implementing privacy policy across the company, influencing the creation of privacy and data protection technologies for customers and overseeing communication and engagement with external stakeholders.

Brendon's presentation "Trust in a (hyper) Connected World" will explore why people won't use technology they don't trust.  In a hyper-connected world, where computing is more personal, pervasive, mobile and cloud-based, an important question in the trust equation is: what happens to my data?
