Following the positive response from our customer forums, we are delighted that we have now opened the forum to the public. This expansion aims to foster more inclusivity, allowing a wider range of individuals to join, participate, and contribute to our discussions. The public forum serves as a valuable platform for anyone to share their voice and champion essential topics within the open data community. Your active involvement can make a significant impact, and we look forward to hearing your insights and ideas!

Initially, the Link Digital Customer forum served as an exclusive platform for our customers to showcase their exciting work. The spotlight presentations from our customers can be found on the Link Digital YouTube channel. These presentations stand as valuable resources, offering insights and innovative ideas for other organisations. Be sure to check them out and get inspired! A big thank you to the open data teams behind the Victorian and Queensland state portals, the Office of the National Data Commissioner, and the New Zealand Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment for their contributions.

But now, with the forum open to the public, we believe it will create an even more diverse and enriching experience. We welcome everyone to take part in the vibrant discussions.

A special thank you goes out to our guest speakers, Pia Andrews and Amber Guette, who made the public forum even more captivating. Their contributions to the forum highlighted the value of the Creative Bureaucracy Festival and Pia’s discussion on “Right Here, Right Now – A Public Servant Revolution” which l am sure left everyone inspired and ready to join the 3.5%.

We can’t wait to continue these engaging discussions with you and welcome new voices to join us where our customers and external stakeholders can freely exchange diverse perspectives, inspiring collective innovation.

For those who couldn’t attend the live sessions, don’t worry. You can watch the recordings on demand on our YouTube channel so you can catch up on the discussions. Thank you again to everyone for being a part of this meaningful event!

Stay tuned for more updates and details about the upcoming forum. We look forward to seeing you there!
