Join the webinar series with the MJ and Council Chief Executives

Digital transformation was already a key priority for local authorities but the need for change has been rapidly accelerated by the pandemic. Local authorities have new challenges to solve, they need to meet increasing demand for services and must keep up with the changing expectations from citizens in line with their consumer experiences. Digital transformation isn't going to be a silver bullet, but it will be vital in the fight to stay efficient and relevant to today's citizens.

You are invited to join the two part webinar series in partnership with The MJ, on 24th and 26th November hosted by Mike Burton, Editorial Director of The MJ.
