Singapore OpenGov Leadership Forum 2021

Virtual Edition

A Platform For Collaboration

Singapore OpenGov Leadership Forum 2021 – Virtual Edition endeavours to bring the crème de la crème technology leaders together for a strategic level discussion on the issues that matter the most.

Reimagine, Reinvent, Redefine Citizen Services in the Brave New World

When year 2020 knocked on our doors, we had a vision and mission to execute our carefully planned year. Nobody had predicted that a virus will disrupt and hasten the pace of digital transformation which would have otherwise taken its own pace.

As we see rapid increase in tech enablement across every sector in the current crisis, we all need to step back and ponder over the almost sudden, massive leap it has had to take in the current crisis.

The response from governments and enterprises around the world to the threat of COVID-19 has been one of the biggest public service challenges in decades. The use of digital tools has played a key role in protecting citizens, with governments having to turn quickly deploy welfare systems, distribute information, and scale up contact tracing.

As we all prepare to return to new “normalcy” in our lives, it is time for Public Services in “New Normal” to Recharge, Reinvent, Reimagine and Reinvigorate

The digital future has arrived.

Our award-winning OpenGov Gamification Table (OGT) format which is now taking place virtually – OpenGov Virtual Gamification Room (OGVR), allows for intimate interaction with delegates from key government agencies and FSI organisations to discuss areas of common concern.

Each OGVR is hosted by a senior government official and an industry leader.

The OGVR provides an opportunity for open discussion with our international and domestic speakers. It also serves as a platform for an intimate sharing and learning session, that is parallel to none.
