Understanding and Changing Public Policy
Nicholas has been a journeyman public servant since 2007.
He has worked both at the bottom and top of the hierarchical structures, on detailed policy analysis and on the coordination of Ministerial briefing books and calendars.
He currently provides advice to policy makers and senior executives on how to use new collaborative technologies to gain efficiencies, foster innovation, and improve engagement. He has been blogging openly about these opportunities (and challenges) at cpsrenewal.ca.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local,
self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like
experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine
to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local,
self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently
organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for
the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.*
