Inspiring Leaders to Transition through Digital Government Education

We believe that leaders must align their e-Government initiatives to their national and organisational vision, and inspire all the key stakeholders to embrace change and adapt to the fast evolving technological landscape. Our carefully designed lectures, site visits and workshops provide the frameworks and best practices that equip leaders to challenge the status quo and undertake whole-of-government digital transformation. To date, we have engaged over 3,600 officers from more than 133 countries in transforming public services.
