If you are a C-level IT professional in the public sector, then this is your opportunity to engage with like-minded individuals who share the same challenges and are seeking similar solutions – now is the time to collaborate!
We have the perfect space for you to engage – the Public Sector ICT Forum was established in early 2016. The board comprises government IT officers (GITOs), chief information officers (CIOs) and chief technology officers (CTOs) from within the public sector. The purpose is to provide a focused platform and opportunity for public sector ICT decision-makers to come together to engage and discuss topics that are key to the local public sector.
Over the past 18 months, this forum has provided valuable thought-leadership and knowledge-sharing events on a number of relevant topics, held exclusively for the local community of ICT decision-makers in the public sector. These events have taken place at the Four Seasons Hotel, Westcliff.
In May 2018, hear new insights and lessons learnt from leading locals, as well as engaging with a broad spectrum of your peers and colleagues within the public sector ICT community.
The topic for the 10 May forum is: The role of the 'new' CIO dissected. Hear from Len de Villiers, group CIO at Telkom; Mthoko Mncwabe, group CIO, South African Post Office; Riaz Osman, director, technology, systems integration leader, Deloitte, and others on their experiences and insight into the 'new' role the CIO plays at board and/or exco level.
The Public Sector ICT Forum provides a space where dialogue and debate is welcomed, no matter how contentious or controversial. Ideas and concepts generated at the biannual events (May and September), and during the quarterly board meetings, are taken back to companies' areas of work and developed further.
You can become part of this informal community, which encourages collaboration and thought-leadership in the name of improved service delivery, by becoming a member.
