Bob Brown

Chief Information Officer
Manchester City Council (Invited)

In the last year Bob Brown has taken ICT from a poor-performing function with limited leadership capability to one with clear goals and objectives. His strategy and vision is to have the most business-aligned ICT service in local government, leading the way in technical innovation, data analytics and intelligence.

  • Aligning infrastructure and talent to harness the power of collaboration within government
  • How can central government work with local to build digital, data and technology capability?
  • Balancing the need for data sharing with data compliance and protection
  • Creating opportunities for technology solutions to be scaled up across government
  • The importance of joint procurement for securing and retaining board level buy-in
  • Addressing the need for a knowledge sharing and training platform across public sector
