Global Government Forum runs a series of regular annual events, all of them aimed at top-level civil servants from governments around the world.

In each case, the agenda is developed in close collaboration with the government delegates, who also provide much of the organised content – offering presentations on their own experiences and pulling out lessons for their peers.

The subsequent conversations are kept deliberately informal, with civil servants and private sector partners free to discuss common global challenges and explain their solutions. Our aim is to support civil service leaders to build relationships, examine issues, and share ideas in private, free-flowing conversations – returning home with new insights, contacts and opportunities.

Flagship annual events include the Global Government Summit and the Global Government Finance Summit.

Global Government Forum also joins forces with other relevant organisations to hold and publicise events aimed at senior civil servants. Details of any such forthcoming events are listed here.
