The relationship between citizen and state can only transform if we create and maintain meaningful relationships with government departments. Kevin Cunnington shares some of what he learned from the inaugural GDS roadshow.

Former Head of the Government Digital Service
The Minister for Cabinet Office announced the launch of the Government Transformation Strategy, which charts the direction of the digitally enabled transformation of government.
Half a decade on, GDS remains committed to its original principles: building and supporting services that put the user first. Here are some of the things I am looking forward to us working on in the next year.
Kevin previously wrote about how GDS needs to make a commitment to collaborate with all government departments. This post announces 2 new senior appointments to GDS. Both will play a vital part in making that collaboration happen.
At the Transforming Together event, Kevin Cunnington set out his initial views on what GDS is here to do and how we’re going to do it.
Hello, I'm delighted to be the new head of GDS. This post is mainly just to introduce myself and say how excited I am about joining the team.
