Cloud - an operating model, not a location provides foundation for COVID response
Andrew Puddephatt, Director UK Public Sector, Nutanix

The current crisis and subsequent urgent demands on technology teams across the public sector has led to innovation and rapid scaling of vital services. Cloud technology - whether it is in your data centre, private cloud or in the public cloud - has provided the tools, agility, scalability and flexibility to meet this challenge and keep the public sector power house operating.

Building a more sustainable public sector during and after COVID-19
Mattie Yeta, Head of Sustainable IT, Defra

Can we take some of the cultural and working changes necessitated by COVID-19 forwards into business as usual - and a more sustainable future? 

How can we influence positive and sustainable change during these tricky times
Nathan Rhodes, Government Lead, Hable

Change Management is taking the end user through the journey of change. With a rapid need to upskilling people in virtual working, using tools like Microsoft Teams, we fail to apply the crucial early steps needed in Change Management. As such, Nathan will talk about how we can still embed effective change by discussing examples across recent customers like the Houses of Parliament. (slides)
