Hippo heads to Washington DC for Government DX


A catalyst for global public service innovation

Hippo is pleased to announce our participation at the upcoming Government DX conference in the US! This unique event, taking place on April 18th and 19th, 2024 in Washington DC, brings together an international audience of technology leaders and public servants to explore the cutting edge of tech-driven innovation in public service delivery. We see this as a natural extension of our successful work in the UK, and a fantastic opportunity to learn from and share experiences on a global stage.

A strong track record in UK digital transformation

Hippo boasts a proven track record in delivering successful digital transformation projects for organisations of national significance in the UK. Our approach bridges the gap between user-centred design principles and robust engineering practices. This human-first approach, combined with data-driven methodologies has led to transformational results, enhancing the lives of UK citizens through improved public service access and functionality.

Taking our expertise to the US

Darren Hutton, Elisse Jones, Mike Tattersall and Liz Whitefield will be representing Hippo stateside. The Hippo delegation is looking forward to sharing insights earned from working with UK institutions on critical projects. Government DX provides an ideal platform to showcase our success stories and engage in important discussions with global counterparts. We believe this knowledge exchange will be mutually beneficial, informing best practices and the development of innovative solutions for public service delivery.

At the heart of the discussion, Hippo’s Chief Digital Officer, Darren Hutton, will be participating in the “Safety First: Building Cybersecurity by Design and Default” panel. Cybersecurity is paramount for effective government operations. This session will discuss how agencies can leverage it to not only reduce risk but also drive broader improvements in technology and service delivery.

Learning from the US experience

While Hippo has established itself as a leader in UK digital transformation, we are lifelong learners. Government DX offers a golden opportunity to gain valuable insights into US and global approaches to public service innovation. The conference will delve into key areas like modernising government technology, bolstering cybersecurity, and leveraging data and AI for better service provision. We’re particularly interested in learning about the “Delivering a Digital-First Public Experience” policy guidance being implemented by the White House as well as sharing our experience and insights in public sector transformation. These lessons will undoubtedly inform our future strategies and allow us to refine our techniques for delivering exceptional digital public services.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

We’re excited to be a part of this dynamic event and contribute to its success. Stay tuned for updates on our participation by following our LinkedIn page.
