Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Trinity Executive Education are delighted to confirm the fourth and final session in our Digital Transformation for Government initiative which will take place on 22 September 2022 in person at Trinity Business School (TBS).

Building on the three preceding parts of the programme, which were delivered online in September and October 2021, the upcoming in-person session will dive deeper into the impact of digital transformation within the Government. It will focus, in particular, on the interplay between digitalisation with sustainability and climate action. Themes connected to cultural change and enhancing service delivery will also be explored.

The event will include a keynote address from a senior Ukrainian government official on digital transformation in a crisis.  

Participants 22 September, who attended a minimum of two out of three elements of the online programme in 2021, will receive an Executive Certificate in Digital Transformation for Government from Trinity Business School.
