The Digital Authority Summit

MJ Events

Local government has changed beyond recognition in the last decade. From major reorganisations to huge budget cuts, the sector has had to remain agile to stay on top of the challenges thrown at it. One of the major drivers of change that is available is technology. To fully embrace this, senior managers and leaders need to ensure that a strong digital strategy is at the heart of their authority’s planning.

Digital enables local authorities to work in a smarter, more economical way while enabling them to work with other organisations to improve services and outcomes for citizens.

The MJ and UKAuthority series of Digital Authority Summit events look at different aspects of this exciting transformative agenda. Focussing on leadership, smart devolution and health, our events have a wide range of expert speakers from across the sector, including local and central government bodies, universities and the third sector. In addition to plenary sessions, delegates get the opportunity to add to the discussion through a series of breakout sessions that feed into a larger debate on the key issues.

Digital Authority Summit events give senior managers and leaders in the sector a unique opportunity to learn how they can implement digital strategy to improve their authority and enhance their services while saving money and working smarter with partner organisations.
