This month Programme Manager for Justice & Emergency Services, Jess, reflects on techUK's annual public sector conference, Building the Smarter State

On the day over 200 leaders from across the public sector and tech industry to unpack challenges and opportunities for tech to enable the future of public services. Speakers and attendees from all levels of government, including public safety, contributed to the conversation that focussed on the twin themes of People and Places. 

During the conference, Jess sat down with two guests; Jenny Nelson, Programme Manager of Digital Newcastle, (interview starts at 00:40) and Wayne Parkes, Director of the National Enabling Programmes (interview starts at 10:12), to discuss how their work and their organisations are contributing to "building the smarter state".
