Content Guru is proud to continue its support of the bi-annual Local Government Strategy Forum (LGSF) as a ‘Platinum Plus’ sponsor, following a highly successful debut at the event last year.
This autumn’s forum will once again be held at Manchester’s Marriott Worsley Country Club on 3rd and 4th November, where hundreds of solutions providers and peers from across the IT industry will come together to discuss existing and forthcoming ICT challenges in Local Government and how best to counteract them.
With a focus on the theme of ‘Transform, Modernise, Improve’, the event aims to provide pioneering views from Local Government and industry thought-leaders on tangible solutions to the challenges that local government organisations are facing on a daily basis. With austerity now set to be permanent, and forthcoming structural changes around business rates retention and planning, Local Government organisations are under more pressure than ever to deliver structurally improved and more digitally-accessible services to citizens on a significantly reduced budget, calling into question the viability of the sector’s legacy ICT solutions, thinking and purchasing culture.
The two-day event combines think tanks, interactive workshops, speed-networking sessions, one-to-one business meetings and inspirational speeches from well-known guest speakers. Attendees will also have the opportunity to network in a more relaxed setting over a hosted lunch and evening meal.
As one of the show’s premium sponsors, Content Guru’s Director and Co-Founder, Martin Taylor, will deliver a keynote address that explores how cloud communications can improve efficiencies and reduce costs for Local Authorities, based on the company’s experience with a number of Local Government clients which use its storm® Communications Integration™ platform.
Looking ahead to the event, Taylor comments:
“We are thrilled to be returning to the Local Government Strategy Forum following an extremely successful and rewarding event last year. This forum will give us a fantastic opportunity to once again share best practices on how the cloud can be used to help organisations deliver on their objectives, especially in the current evolving political landscape.”
