"I look forward to the Maryland Digital Government Summit every year. It’s a great way to stay up-to-date on technology trends and to network with other jurisdictions and private industry specialists. Sometimes there’s just no substitute for personal interaction, and the Summit is an ideal place to do it."

 

- Sonny Segal, Chief Information Officer, Montgomery County

Maryland Digital Government Summit 2015

Overview


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Maryland Digital Government Summit is designed to do just that. The summit has an advisory board that gathers public- and private-sector leaders to create an agenda designed to make that passion relevant and actionable to the state and local government organizations attending the summit. Participants tell us they use the inspirational keynotes, leadership discussions, networking breaks, and the timely topics discussed in the numerous breakout sessions to help advance the goals of their organizations.
 
If you influence or participate in technology decisions or implementations at any level, you will want to attend.  Don't miss this opportunity to see the latest in digital government solutions, keep abreast of current policy issues, and network with key government executives, technologists and industry specialists.

Today’s culture emphasizes the value of teamwork and collaboration, sometimes at the expense of the individual. This is particularly true in the IT arena where you can sometimes find yourself stereotyped, or even worse, not taken seriously by potential stakeholders. What good are insights and solutions if your words get lost in the crowd? You need to make sure that you’re heard! Jim Meskimen has spent the past 30 years studying the most famous, creative and interesting people in modern times. In this fascinating and hilarious session, Jim discusses – and illustrates – the traits and methods used by some of the best and most charismatic communicators in the world. Don’t settle for being “one of the crowd”. YOU have a unique identity. YOU have a voice!

Somewhere within every organization, a crisis is waiting to happen. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next year or even in five years; you can’t be sure what the crisis will be or when it will strike. But you can be sure that a crisis will put your organization’s (or your own) hard-earned image and reputation up for grabs. Learn how to control the flow of information and communicate with the media, stakeholders, bosses, peers and other audiences during a crisis.
