Also presenting was former NSW Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government, Victor Dominello, who took conference participants through the Service NSW technology innovation journey. Other topics included new and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and how it could impact councils now and in the future. “The foundations on which this forum has been built – sharing knowledge and networking with your peers – remain as vital today as they were when the conference was first held 26 years ago,” said Steve Bayliss, City of Coffs Harbour’s Director Business Services.
