Public Sector ICT Forum’s webinar zones in on digital workforce

Read time 1min 50sec

Unlike past events, the next instalment of the Public Sector ICT Forum (PSICT Forum) will take place virtually as a webinar, on 4 June.

The PSICT Forum, organised by ITWeb Brainstorm in association with MTN Business, is a platform for public sector ICT decision-makers to engage and discuss topics that are key to innovation in service delivery.

While tech events continue to be cancelled as the COVID-19 pandemic wreaks havoc across the globe, the forum decided to take the online route to host its event.

It will be held under the theme: “Building a public sector workforce of the future”.

This will be an opportunity to delve into the importance of digitally upskilling the public sector’s workforce in the advent of COVID-19, 5G and the fourth industrial revolution, says the forum.

“In response to president Cyril Ramaphosa's address to the nation regarding lockdown restrictions due to the COVID-19 virus, we have taken the decision to continue with the Public Sector ICT Forum events virtually, as webinars.

“As the Public Sector ICT Forum, we remain positive that the COVID-19 pandemic will end soon. We have seen the impact that remote working has had across industries and the importance of a digitally-savvy workforce in these trying times. For this reason, we think the topic of building a public sector workforce of the future is a pivotal subject that cannot be ignored.

“We have made it easy for you to join this event online and hear the latest content from an unparalleled speaker line-up.”

The free event will feature a keynote address from Eldrid Jordaan, founder and CEO of citizen engagement platform GovChat.

Other people on the speaker line-up include Vuma Magaqa, director of e-health at the Department of Health in KwaZulu-Natal; Nomazwi Mhloma, deputy head of IT services at eThekwini Municipality; Henry Denner, information security officer, Gautrain Management Agency; and Magatho Mello, GM of public sales, MTN SA.
