This is a show for anyone who cares about using digital approaches in the public sector to deliver better outcomes. We explore stories from around the world, where public servants have been successful at driving change. We meet the people behind the stories, to hear their first-hand experiences and lessons learned. Throughout the series we discuss technology and trends, as well as the cultural aspects of making change happen.  

Host Olivia Neal is passionate about the use of digital approaches to help the public sector work better for those it serves. She is the Director of Digital Transformation in Microsoft’s Worldwide Public Sector Team where she has the privilege of working with teams from all around the world.
