High Level Forum (18 November 2020)

The Government After Shock Global Forum brought together over 100 speakers, 21 panel discussions and 1300 participants to discuss the implications of the COVID-19 crisis, and shape the future of government.

Interviews with Leading Experts

Leading up to the event, we’re sitting down with innovation experts to discuss what the crisis means for government, both today and tomorrow.



The Dialogues Network is network of event organisers and conveners who can help inform the global discussion about the crisis and its implications for government and others. By connecting like-minded events with similar aims, collectively we can ensure the conversation continues to evolve and mature.

Events that are part of the Network agree to have a dedicated component (during or after the event), facilitated by the Government After Shock team, to identify key take-away messages that can help inform the broader global discussion. These will inform an ‘insights capture’ report that can help others learn about and build on the conversations that took place at each event. You can see the insights reports developed so far here.

If you would like your event to be part of the 2020 After Shock Dialogues Network, please get in touch.
