Smart Communities Roadshow 2019 Presentation

by | March 10, 2019

I had the honour of delivering the keynote presentation at the Public Sector Network Smart Communities Roadshow 2019 in Vancouver on Wednesday March 6, 2019. I leveraged the World Economic Forum Global Risks 2019 report to show focus areas for us as we invest in Smart Cities technologies. I posted my presentation slides here.

The event had many excellent organizations and presenters. The collaboration and ideas shared helped me gain a better understanding of the challenges/opportunities that adopting Smart Cities technologies.

Looking forward to your comments and feedback.

    Hi Leo
    Very good slide deck. I like the bubbles breakdown re digital strategy in SmartCities strategy, and reminisced about trying to move those similar bubbles in higher ed ;-).

    Hey I am working on a great new initiative that may intersect with your SmartCities work. I am rolling out training and development for engineers, agrologists, urban planners, etc on climate change adaptation (funded by BC Climate Action Secretariat and Natural Resources Canada), with 7 BC post-secs and 7 professional associations involved. Perhaps we should figure a way to make these 2 initiatives (digital transformation and climate adaptation) leverage off each other, since they are both right up at the top of WEF priorities. If you are interested let’s connect for a coffee to catch up and see what we can do re mindmeld.
