Closing plenary- Dan Mcquillan- tapping into passion, energy and being human.

We were lucky enough to have Dan Mcquillan wrapping up and reflecting on myPublicServices09. A fantastic talk about the questions that we should be asking and how to use the enthusiasm and drive that were so clear throughout all sessions to tackle the real problems faced. Here he is being interviewed by David Wilcox about “power, participation & recuperation.”

We also have the live blog saved with content collected from the closing plenary sessions, including Paul Hodgkin asking to ‘make a promise to yourself’ and James Munro’s wrap up.

A fantastic and inspirational close to a great day.

Links to photos will follow, as well as those all important postcards!


“The scope for doing things better and cheaper is huge.”

Some honest and though provoking ideas from Lee Bryant from Headshift, who talks to David Wilcox about taking the terrific opportunity to change the way that public services are developed.

Also, an interesting blog from Ray Duffill who wrote as a ‘virtual attendee’ demonstrating how the social media enabled the message of the day to be accessed through the web. A great example of utilising the tools available to include everyone.
