Residents and businesses were invited to Breakfast at Kingston Maurward College, Dorchester to hear what experts think are the future digital opportunities and developments. This stimulated discussion of what our residents believe could and should happen, so we could start to consider the type of infrastructure and skills we need to facilitate for Dorset to realise its ambitions.
Digital Leaders in Dorset and elsewhere in England involved in digital place strategy or smart cities agendas were able to share ideas and thinking to what a ‘rural smart place’ might look like.
Group discussions covered different topics on:
There was a keynote session from a futurologist, round table discussions, and a chance for people to learn some new digital skills for the workplace.
The session started a countywide discussion which fed directly into the new Dorset Council’s Digital Place vision and strategy.
