We caught up with him on the sidelines of the proceedings to discuss the awards and their importance, the current landscape in the UK’s digital public sector and his hopes for future digital transformation.

Having these events is really important and I’m so glad that my colleagues could be here today, and colleagues from all over the public sector. Only a few of them can win, but… all over the public sector there’s transformation going on,” he said.
