Digital Summit

5-6 October 2022 – Ottawa, Canada
Hosted by the Government of Canada

The round table summit for the world’s digital leaders.

The Digital Summit brings together national and departmental digital chiefs from across the globe for open, informal discussion of the opportunities and challenges around public sector digital transformation.


About the event

Organised by Global Government Forum, the Digital Summit will blend presentations delivered by participants and Knowledge Partners with informal round table discussions. The event allows delegates to speak openly and honestly about their successes, their failures, and what they have learned along the way.

Sometimes, you learn most from talking to people who do a job like yours. And for many national and departmental digital leaders, that often means your peers working for other governments. For while many of the challenges you face are unique within your country, governments around the world must address a similar set of opportunities, risks, obstacles and decisions in their pursuit of digital transformation. The world’s digital leaders have a huge amount to learn from one another.

The Digital Summit is open to national and federal public servants working as national digital leaders, departmental heads of digital, data and IT, and heads of the digital profession.

Whilst governments around the world adopted essential strategies to respond to the global pandemic, it was important that these beneficial discussions continued to take place. Therefore, in 2021 the Digital Summit was held online as a virtual event, the topics included: Delivering at pace: what we learned in the pandemic, Refining the new oil: using data to fuel government and power citizens, and Organic intelligence: using AI wisely in the civil service. See the Agenda page for more details.
