The IT consolidation process is putting greater emphasis on working across jurisdictional lines to develop IT solutions that deliver the best value for taxpayers in support of Governor Dayton's Better Government for a Better Minnesota reform agenda. The 2012 Minnesota Digital Government Summit is a great opportunity to exchange ideas with peers in the public and private sectors about what IT can do to result in better government for Minnesota."

Keynote Speakers

Tim Gard is an internationally recognized authority on stress reduction and conflict resolution. A highly sought-after speaker, Tim's travels have ranged from Bangkok to Boston, from Singapore to Sioux City, and Texas to Tasmania. He has won numerous awards, including his recent induction into the Speakers Hall of Fame - a prestigious honor that has been awarded to less than two hundred people worldwide. Tim's life experiences are both extensive and varied. He was raised in an Air Force family and "rebelled" by serving as a Navy man. Following his wartime service, Tim was employed in various capacities in County, State and Federal government. He became an expert fraud investigator and this work led him to extensively study human behavior, the art of persuasion, and various methods for resolving difficult situations. He quickly learned that humor is an indispensable tool in human relations. He now devotes himself to teaching these skills to others so that their interactions and life experiences can be expanded, maximized, and, most important of all, fun!
