Over the last 6 years, THINK Digital Government has developed a reputation for having the best speakers in the public sector.  We regularly secure the support and participation of leaders from various government departments that impart their knowledge around the future direction of cloud in the public sector, of the frameworks that are available and of their experiences as prosumer departments.

In addition to our public sector speakers, we also have industry figureheads from top analyst firms telling us how the industry is performing and what to expect in the coming months and years.  We also try to recruit X-government leaders as speakers who offer fascinating insight into the industry both past and present and are keen to offer their opinions on where we should go next.
