AGM & Finance PD Breakfast Event

No $mall Change!

You've been there before. Trying to move your team through a transition that's promised to be "seamless", won't impact day-to-day business operations, and guarantees "Cheaper! Better! Faster!" outcomes for the public. Then, why so much resistance? How will you identify risk and avoid common tripwires? And, what can you do as a leader to decrease the line-ups outside your office and address pressures from above? "No $mall Change" suggests all transitions have complexity-AND the opportunity to proactively maximize key investments. This session supports you in your key role as a finance professional as you help convert change into cash and capability for your organization.

Austerity Budgets and Municipal Amalgamation
The German Experience

Over the past decades, the notion of government austerity has become firmly entrenched in the pervasive political narrative around the world. Governments of all strips have readily embraced policies ostensibly designed to minimize the role of government. Corporate tax rates have fallen, opportunities to avoid those taxes have increased and broad-scale corruption has further eroded both the public's confidence in corporations and the ability of governments to sustain themselves. 

This presentation will challenge some of the established thinking around job creation, corporate taxes and globalization. Using the lens of prudent financial management, attendees will explore the failings of the current system and be challenged to become more engaged in conversations about truly sustainable societies.

Presentation and Panel Discussion

Victoria Marriott Hotel

Event flyer

Government has been managing with fewer resources and a continuing increase in infrastructure and service needs to serve the citizens of British Columbia well.  This has resulted in a higher level of innovation, focus on transparency and demonstration of value for money through its procurement practices. We have a panel of procurement experts to discuss emerging trends and developments happening in procurement in the public sector, both in British Columbia and beyond.

We will kick off the session with a presentation by PwC Canada on Public Sector procurement trends and practices that are being applied and are making a difference.  Which organizations have mastered their procurement processes; balancing efficiency and effectiveness with the necessary controls and oversight?  This professional development-session considers this challenge from many perspectives; procurement professionals, public employees (who need to purchase goods and services), the financial manager, system providers, and the taxpayer who ultimately pays for the purchase.

Uncommon insight: Leveraging the power of analytics in the public sector

 

Understanding the power of analytics is crucial to helping transform the Public Sector. Many government organizations intuitively know they have a need to enhance their evidence based decision-making capabilities by leveraging their substantial data assets, however, very few are able to articulate their specific needs. Organizations that surmount this challenge successfully will hold the keys to enabling more effective strategic decision making, and driving organizational transformation.

This session provided a brief overview of how Deloitte defines analytics and how it can support government decision-making. The session showcased demonstrations of analytics in action, and how evidence-based decision making, enabled by advanced analytics, has delivered transformative results in the Public Sector

Featured Speakers

Session facilitators Andy Potter and Clayton Knight of Deloitte have helped government leaders seeking emerging technologies and fresh insights operate, collaborate, and deliver analytics in new and different ways.
