Top public servants from around the world will share their secrets of government innovation at a major London conference next year.

Sessions will cover topics including policy making, digital transformation, inclusion, leadership and the workforce, data, digital ID and cyber security.

The event is co-hosted by the UK government, UK civil service, Cabinet Office, and Global Government Forum and championed by Alex Chisholm, the UK civil service’s chief operating officer.

Chisholm will speak at the event, with others officials confirmed to attend including Martin Ledolter, the managing director of Austria’s Federal Procurement Agency, Stephen Burt, the chief data officer, Treasury Board Canada Secretariat of the Government of Canada, Taimar Peterkop, the secretary of state of the government office in Estonia, Christina Lang, the chief executive officer of DigitalService in Germany, and Dag Strømsnes, the chief procurement officer and director of the division for public procurement, at The Norwegian Agency for Public and Financial Management.

He said: “Innovation 2023 will help civil servants from a range of key professions and functions, and from countries around the world, to promote and develop new approaches to policymaking and service delivery.
