About this event:

The COVID crisis has forced rapid advances in how governments think:  how they observe; make sense of patterns; use models and plan big interventions.   

They've had to make use of data of all kinds; draw on complex scientific advice; and mobilise local ingenuity - all while maintaining public trust.  Some have risen to the tasks much better than others. 

So what could the lessons mean for the future of government?  Are we in the midst of a revolution in government cognition and if so what does this mean for roles, skills and methods?

Join us for a conversation with Geoff Mulgan Professor of Collective Intelligence, Public Policy and Social Innovation and Aaron Maniam, Deputy Secretary in the Singapore Government, moderated by Sam Hannah-Rankin, Exec Director in the Victorian Public Sector.

🎥 We will record this session.

And share the video via youtube and our newsletter for those that can't attend.
