Organizing this conference was an amazing experience.  I had the privilege of working with a group of talented, committed people toward something important.  We were a team. Each of us had the opportunity to contribute the best of ourselves.  We created space for that, and we let it happen.

Participants exclaimed at the quality and diversity of the speakers, the diversity of the format, the energy of the day and beyond.  That outcome was a direct result of the diversity and talent on the team.  The conference wasn’t created by one brain, and it wasn’t vanilla flavour.

The experience makes me think of one of my favourite quotations of all time, by Margaret Meade:  ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has’.

Open government means something slightly different to each of us.  Core tenets include transparency and collaboration.  I am proud that we created this conference about open government using the tenets of open government.
