CraigThomler

25+ yr digital veteran who has spent about 40% of my career working in, or to, government (and most of the rest building startups).

I’ve led national public digital consultation programs, overseen the web & intranet presences for major federal agencies & supported the open data movement in various capabilities since it began in Australia, from helping define data strategy, managing data release within agencies and participating in GovHack in organisation & participation roles.

I recently joined Accenture to leverage their capability to support agencies, helping to develop content and channel strategies for large government web transformation projects, facilitated three hackathons (in Malaysia, Australia & NZ) supporting agencies to develop innovative solutions to complex challenges, amongst helping lead their digital practice for government.

I won the inaugural Government 2.0 Individual Innovator Award & are a mentor in CSIRO’s ON innovation program.
