Delivering Digital Devolution in Local Authorities

Learn how Councils are rising to the challenges of Digital Devolution

This is a one day event where Local Authority Department Heads can find out how to shape digital strategies to capitalise on devolution.

Delegates will have the opportunity to listen to, and learn from, other Councils’ experiences of putting technology at the heart of their devolution agenda. Attend this event to inform your digital strategy against other UK authorities and collaborate on pragmatic practices for your future.



"Let the Devolution Evolution begin"

On 5th October, George Osborne announced “Let the Devolution Revolution begin”, as he set out plans to devolve new powers from Whitehall to the regions to “promote growth and prosperity”.

At the same time, in the broader technology landscape, large organisations are evolving through a period of Digital Transformation; making better use of data and processes to deliver more. Some local authorities in the UK have viewed these concurrent trends as an opportunity – a unique point in time when technology deployment can create the largest increases in productivity and reductions in cost.
