Christian Bason will introduce his new book Leading Public Sector Innovation: Co-creating for a Better Society, which shows how government agencies can use co-creation* to overcome barriers and deliver more value, at lower cost, to citizens and business.  The presentation will be based on inspiring global case studies, practical examples, and the key triggers of public sector innovation outlined in the book.  This event is for public sector managers and staff, social innovators, business innovators, researchers, consultants and others with a stake in the public sector of tomorrow.

A video of Christian's talk and the slides from his presentation while in Canada last year are online at the magazine Horizons, published by Policy Research Institute (PRI), a collaborative research unit of the Federal Government.

Key points from Christian's book can be seen in this article on the Guardian website.  

Christian also wrote a recent contribution to Al Etmanski's blog.
