We all know that the tech is already out there, indeed, we often already own it. But are our teams maximising its value to reduce their own workload, join the dots and solve the biggest problems?

Our expert speakers for the day who will help us explore the nitty-gritty practicals, as well as wider vision, of making our tech work for us in the messy real world:

Prof Jaideep Prabhu – Professor of Business and Enterprise at the Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge and author of Innovation, How to do More with Less.

Derrick Anderson CBE, former Chief Executive of Lambeth Council and honorary fellow at London South Bank University.

Dr Adam Lent, Director of NLGN, former Director of the RSA Action and Research Centre and former Head of Economics and Social Affairs at the Trades Union Congress.

This event will take place 11am-2pm on Tuesday 28 January at The Stanley Building, King’s Cross St. Pancras. It’s presented by Social Finance, a not-for-profit organisation that partners with the government, social sector and financial community to find better ways of tackling social problems in the UK and beyond. It’s organised by NLGN, a LocalGov network and thinktank.

It’s free but by invitation only. If you would like to attend this event, register here
