Register now and learn how governments can effectively engage with citizens.

Today, citizens expect services to be highly personalised and always available. The private sector, in particular retail and eCommerce, has revolutionised customer care and consumer interaction, raising the expectations of individuals and organisations as they interact with government agencies.

Register now for this information rich webinar, where you'll hear from Microsoft industry experts on how online retailers are getting it right and meet digital engagement experts who will demonstrate how your government entity can create the experiences that citizens expect.

We'll discuss how government agencies can better serve by:

  • Delivering personalised services and apps that enable people to connect with your services;
  • Having a real-time digital presence that directs citizens to the content, information and services they need;
  • Using open data initiatives to spur city-related mobile app development and economic growth; and
  • Boosting speed to service via mobile tools enabling your remote and mobile workforce

  • Hear from senior managers from across the public sector so you can benchmark your systems and strategies and strengthen your teams ability to respond to challenges
  • Learn how you can increase the level of collaboration between your team and others so that your team can continually meet strategic organizational goals
  • Gain insights into how leading minds are training and structuring their teams
  • Analyse how others have transformed their teams into high performing procurement teams
