Keynote Speaker: Smart Government – Reduce the Distance between People

Martin O’Malley, Keynote Speaker, Governor – State of Maryland (2007 – 2015)

Governor Martin O’Malley, one of the most technologically-savvy governors in the U.S., recently completed his second successful term as governor of Maryland, and was subsequently appointed to the Johns Hopkins University's Carey Business School as a visiting professor focusing on government, business and urban issues.

Over the course of his tenure as Governor (and previously, as Mayor of Baltimore), Governor O’Malley’s strong belief in timely, accurate, and transparent information led to a new age of performance management throughout the State and across multiple organizations. His model in the State of Maryland not only delivered innovative management solutions in Maryland’s environment, healthcare, water resources, and green spaces; it also served as a model for other governments across the nation.

Governor O’Malley and his administration used these evidence based approaches to make choices for the state that resulted in national rankings including Education Week recognizing its schools as the best public schools in America for 5 years in a row and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce acknowledging it as #1 in STEM jobs.

Governor O’Malley will share how managers can use GIS technology and leadership to help meet the needs of citizens with particular emphasis on reducing the distance between people and government and creating a more inclusive picture.
