Today I’ve been at the OneTeamGov event, organised by the brilliant Kit Collingwood and team (huge props to Jenny btw, she is awesome).

The reason for the event is well explained here but put simply it was about how government can work better together. It’s no mean feat trying to get government departments to collaborate. The team managed to draw funding from across different government departments which was a great way to signal the intention and lay important foundations. As I was on the periphery of the organising committee I also know how hard the team worked at ensuring there was a balance of policy folk, digital folk, and that every department was represented.
