Hilary has spoken for Connected Local Government on a number of subjects including:

What can SME tech companies do to help Local Government keep the show on the road and protect vulnerable people?

Hilary co-founded Sleuth Cooperative to engage her diverse networks to collaborate on projects which will help Local Government break out of groupthink, and adopt a more design thinking mindset.


Sleuth's objective is to use a data-informed approach to align SME technology and services offers with local government technology and digital strategy change programs to build IT capacity and capability for the future.


A Linkedin blog by Hilary about legacy systems suppliers attracted a great deal of interest amongst local government and Small and Medium-sized software companies. 


Hilary co-chaired the subsequent UnConference  - an informal setting to encourage open and honest insight to start to unpack the issues, whilst providing valuable networking opportunities.

Single view technology procurement for London Borough of Camden

Hilary won the Information Age – Public Sector Deployment of the Year Award 2015 for delivering the Camden Residents Index (CRI): a Master Data Management solution linking people data from 16 line of business systems, achieved in 3 months. The CRI has countless benefits: from an instant view of the practitioners working with a Hilary won the Information Age – Public Sector Deployment of the Year Award 2015 family, to identifying fraudulently sublet flats. It saves over £500k per annum for Camden. I achieved a careful balancing of risks – enabling minimal amounts of personal data to be shared, legally and securely.

Hilary speaks on shared services and commissioning a secure email solution for all the London Boroughs.
