April Teacamp – AMA with Hadley Beeman

Hadley has been around the public sector for 13 years, designing and delivering digital services, playing with data, writing strategies, interpreting tech for policymakers, and generally stirring up trouble.

She has spent time in local government, the NHS, DH, InnovateUK, GDS and Cabinet Office — in addition to founding a start-up called LinkedGov and spending some time with Mozilla, the Firefox browser people.

In her non-gov time, she works on the architecture of the Web with the W3C. She’ll be joining us for an AMA (ask me anything).

Topics thus far include:

  • The ins and outs of a ministerial private office (as a digital/tech person)
  • Generating millions of pounds for the Treasury from a ridiculous idea in the pub
  • Explaining blockchains in 90 seconds to a member of the Royal family
  • Moving from open data to the Things We Don’t Talk About (the cyber world)
  • The W3C and web standards — the “government” of the web
  • What’s left on her to-do list for digital government

Feel free to send her questions or bring suggestions, and as usual there’s the #teacamp hashtag to follow the conversation on!
