Overview


Government Technology’s passion is helping spread best practices and spurring innovation in the public sector. The Texas 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.

Opening Keynote - Find Your Voice


     


Jim_Meskimen_HeadshotJim 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!

 

 

Day 2 Morning Keynote

Dustin_Haisler_headshotDustin Haisler, Chief Innovation Officer, e.Republic

Where there's a will there's a way. Technology has reached the point where it can support just about anything that anyone wants to do. The toughest challenge for a government organization is to embrace the process of reinventing itself, but sometimes external pressures leave you no choice.  In this eye-opening session, noted innovator Dustin Haisler will discuss emerging trends and technologies that are disrupting the way citizens interact with businesses and government agencies.

 

 

 

General Session

Elizabeth_Frisch_headshotElizabeth Frisch, Best-Selling Author & Founder of The Thrival Company

It’s so easy to find fault and criticize others for their inability to change. We often get frustrated by our lack of control when working in a bureaucracy or government setting. We feel powerless to get others (and the system) to change. Yet, the key to mastering working with others in this challenging environment to shift their behaviors is to master shifting your own. This fun, engaging keynote provides 8 critical practices to shifting yourself so you can powerfully shift others.
