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

30 min Hive Talk: How Might We Develop Free Agents in the BC Public Service? FULL

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The Federal Government has piloted and developed a Free Agent program. This program recruits public servants who have innovative attributes and problem-solving skills to become free agents and work on assignments across the organization. Free agents have full control of their careers, picking and choosing assignments that align with their interests, while hiring managers have access to a pre-screened and qualified pool of high-quality talent. How might we introduce this concept into the BCPS?

Note: Hive talks are small sessions of approximately 15 people. Your host(s) will pitch a provocative question or theme and then engage you in a dialogue. Come prepared to share your thoughts and ideas, and have a conversation with your colleagues.
