Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Michigan 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.
This Year’s Topics Include:
Jim Meskimen, Master Impressionist and Communication Coach
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!
Roger Duncan, Research Fellow, Energy Institute, University of Texas
Technology and energy are inextricable. They evolve – or fail to evolve – mutually, and their combined impact on society is incalculable. Today we are headed for an entirely new form of “Industrial Revolution”. Technology megatrends such as nanotechnology, robotics, embedded intelligence, smart buildings and the “Internet of Everything” will dramatically alter the social landscape, as will extraordinary advances in energy production and storage. Some of it may be more hype than reality at this point, but there are some serious game-changers already in play and many more to come. In this session, nationally known energy and technology expert Roger Duncan explores the road ahead and discusses government’s complex balancing act in keeping our nation safe, secure and prosperous.
