ReMix: Leading an Innovative BC Public Service has ended
Join over 400 BC Public Service senior and executive leaders and select external guests for a two-day conference in Victoria focused on leading public sector innovation. At ReMix, you can expect a diverse line-up of presenters and facilitators and a variety of sessions including plenary keynotes and workshops, interactive breakout options, and open dialogue in The Hive (next to the turntable).

View the full agenda and choose your preferred sessions here on Sched but go where your innovative heart leads you on Feb. 4-5. Hint: if your heart leads you to a limited capacity session, get there early.

  • The Champions: These curious and courageous folks are passionate about innovation and would love to talk to you about it at ReMix. Any one of them can answer a question, share a story, or hook you up with a notepad.
  • The Buzz Zones: Visit all ten Buzz Zones to learn more about innovative work happening across the BC Public Service including behavioural science, who’s doing digital, new approaches to policy making and much more. 
  • The Hive: A gathering space for informal dialogue with 15-20 participants and host(s). If you visit the Hive, prepare to get real with your colleagues on some of the challenges (and opportunities) facing our organization.    

ReMix isn’t your average conference. Come with an open mind and leave a more innovative leaderl

Through a Systems Thinking lens, this session will lend perspective to the complex challenges facing cities and communities across Canada, with commonality around the world. From climate change to inequity and housing, through to social isolation and lack of trust in government – innovation has never been more important than it is today in the public service. This session will explore the role of leaders, community, young people and collaboration in navigating increasing complexity through an up-close view into the relationship focused, playful and hopeful world of CityStudio, an innovation hub at the heart of City Hall in Vancouver.
