Local services: ramping up capacity for ICT enabled reform
Socitm 2012 is to have a new format!
This year we offer two streams, covering strategy and delivery. These are designed to appeal both to Socitm members and to their colleagues, by covering a broader range of disciplines.
Not only will the programme format and content address the growing and changing needs of a more varied membership it will seek to reflect some of the many issues that, due to the increasing pace of change, did not even exist only a few years ago.
Along with major keynotes and insightful plenary presentations, we have introduced master classes to enable our members to discuss and share what they have actually implemented, what has worked and what has not. The 'master classes' will all be taken from real examples of what is being done or has been achieved and will equip attendees, not only with ideas and how to avoid pitfalls, but also valuable contacts with those who may have 'been there before you'.
We have also introduced lightning talks. These will be short presentations from private public or third sectors focussing on issues and challenges they have overcome and, along with the opportunity for discussion and Q & A, will be a valuable and practical opportunity for learning and development.
What to expect
Day 1, Tuesday 27 November: The event starts with our Senior networking dinner, which always has a quiz and, in the tradition of all good 'pub quizzes' will see a number of people using technology in innovative ways to give them an edge (cheat) along with a great opportunity to meet people from all sectors.
Day 2, Wednesday 28 November: The conference and exhibition opens, providing the opportunity to network with suppliers and colleagues alike.
In the evening, we will be hosting our Awards Dinner. The awards are to celebrate achievement and say thank you to our members and supporters. The dinner will also host the graduation of our first participants on the highly successful 'Top Talent' programme run by Socitm in association with IBM.
Day 3, Thursday 29 November: Our final day includes speakers, master classes, and a presentation from our Graham Williamson Research Award winner, one of the most talked about conference presentations in recent years. There will also be a final opportunity to meet exhibitors and sponsors and discuss how they are helping organisations to deliver innovative and effective services.
As well as full delegate attendance, we have day delegate options. . If day delegates want to attend one or both of the dinners, there is also the option to purchase tickets (subject to availability) or even stay for only one night rather than two.
