Expert Gathering Will Bring Fresh Perspective on Emerging Technologies and Harnessing the Power of Disruptive Change to Make Government More Effective

FAIRFAX, VA – October 27, 2017 – Salient CRGT, Inc. Digital Transformation expert Neal Smith will speak at the American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) Executive Leadership Conference (ELC) on October 29 – 31 in Williamsburg, VA. Smith will share insights into how the mission of Agencies is best achieved when digital transformation empowers people and does not lean only on new technology or tools. His presentation “Customer Centric Engagement, It’s Not Just The Web Site” will be on Monday October 30, 10:45 AM. to 11:00 AM.

ELC has been the place where government and industry leaders have gathered in an interactive and collaborative setting to discuss how to better execute the mission of government and is expected to connect more the 800 senior government industry executives.

This year’s theme, Mission Possible, will focus on the unprecedented changes taking place in the government and industry divided into three tracks:

  • Mission Transformation: Innovation of people, process and technology
  • Mission Engagement: Engaging a broad set of constituencies to deliver better outcomes
  • Mission Protection: Protecting the systems and infrastructure critical and balancing privacy constraints

Smith, VP of Salient CRGT’s Digital Services Innovation center, is a proven leader, innovator, and expert in digital transformation. With over 25 years as a technology and business consultant, Smith’s experience provides him with unique insights shared in his editorial “Small Tweaks Can Result in Big Savings for Government Health Data” published in American Security Today. Smith has been instrumental in the vision, development, and implementation of Salient CRGT’s Digital Service Innovation Center. He has been a leader in preparing Salient CRGT’s successful teams for DHS FLASH and USCIS ODDS.  Smith has been involved with innovative technologies since the early 2000s and has the gift of translating complex subjects into easy-to-understand language.

“The challenge of Digital Transformation is to advance technology while embracing the human experience. The government cannot just update public websites with new templates and achieve digital customer service,” said Smith. “Innovation in customer service through digital means rethinking how we see productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness. The ACT-IAC ELC gathering provides the perfect opportunity to share these and other insights with government leaders who can implement valuable changes for generations to come.”

Attendees will be able to participate in the popular Innovation Zone, an interactive, hands-on space spearheaded by the ACT-IAC Institute for Innovation that helps solve real life problems.
