CT Labs is pleased to announce that we will be leading an innovation exercise as part of PS Engage: A tapestry of People and Ideas.

PS Engage is a one-day learning and networking event that weaves together the themes of collaboration, innovation, and mobilization. These topics are increasingly important in a public service environment characterized by limited resources and demographic shifts. To prosper in a sustainable way, federal government employees must collaborate, share knowledge, and forge new partnerships.

This jam-packed event will feature plenary sessions, discussion circles, and activities designed by CT Labs to provide practical, hands-on learning and networking opportunities. A diverse array of speakers will share their stories on government mobilization and Web 2.0 initiatives. Notable presenters include: the Honourable Tony Clement, President of Treasury Board and Minister for the Federal Economic Development Initiative for Northern Ontario ; Mr. GovLoop, Steve Ressler; Public Affairs Director at Mayo Clinic, Ina Parvanova; and, President & CEO of the Canadian Science and Technology Museums, Denise Amyot.

All levels of public service employees are encouraged to attend and benefit from connecting with change-agents and thought-leaders who care about building a better public service. The event will be held 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. on November 22, 2011 at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum, and will be followed by a complimentary wine and cheese networking gala. Registration for single delegates is $499, and group discounts are available. All proceeds from the event will go towards building a better public service by funding the Virtual Government Network Concept.
