    • Discover current examples of how the BC Public Service and the Public Sector globally are reinventing the way work gets done, and how services are provided to citizens, with new technologies and tools. Unleashing a new approach to how we work is helping organizations realize time savings in excess of 90%.

    • During this event Deloitte's Strategy and Operations leader, Mike Rosenblood, and Analytics and Information Management leader Jacob Kuijpers, will showcase examples of automation through AI in the BC Public Service and engage the audience to explore key components and challenges surrounding AI projects - information that will help you prepare for successful AI adoption.
